MORE students have expressed interest in learning classical Indian dance and music studies at the Lautoka Girmit Centre.

Indian High Commissioner to Fiji Vinod Kumar said this was determined after collaborations with various cultural groups.

"Here at the Girmit Centre, we were teaching dance and music — instrumental and vocal music — to students and we needed instruments," he said.

"The donation of musical instruments by the Indian Government will help to cater for the large number of students who have shown interest in classes for dance and music."

He said there were plans to introduce collaborations with local groups.

"We have collaborated with various organisations to organise cultural programs and we have been doing this from time to time."

He has urged students to have regular performances and continue to promote dance and music.

because we believe a person is complete when he has some understanding of music, dance or other art forms.

"The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has also given us some publications on art for students and these have been distributed to schools."
