SEASON Two of Fiji's Dancing Superstar is expected to start in a few months.

After visiting India about two weeks ago, the people behind the event say the second season looks promising. Sandeep Singh, the event director, and Vineel Nand met renowned choreographer Terence Louis in India and discussed the possibility of him coming to Fiji as a special judge for the event.

They were accompanied by their India office employee Sunita Khan.

Louis is also the judge of the dancing competition Dance India Dance.

Mr Nand said the Terrence Louis Academy would provide choreography from the grand audition onwards.

"His presence will motivate the youths of Fiji. Last year we had more than 12,000 people registered to take part and this year we are targeting about 20,000 people to take part in different dance form," he said.

He said they also met Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty, who initiated and started Dance India Dance.

Mr Nand said they discussed the possibility of Chakraborty coming to Fiji for the grand finale as a special judge.
