Sachiko she believes in sharing the energy, spirit and mana of Fijian contemporary dance with the planet.

In this talk she shares the secrets of her successful artistic entrepreneurship, which has seen her run a contemporary dance company in her small island home Fiji for 10 years.

She believes her model allows all artists to have fulfilling and sustainable careers while still remaining true to their artistic pursuits.

Sachiko Soro is a human that fell in love with dance and playing music at a young age which led to her spending most of her life doing it.

Sachiko founded the VOU Dance Company in Fiji more than 10 years ago. The company provides scholarships for hopeful dancers and supports the careers of dancers by hiring them as full time professionals. VOU has performed at events all over the world and runs to Dance Schools in Suva and Nadi.

Sachiko majored in dance in New Zealand and returned to Fiji to start the VOU Dance Company which connects us to the culture of Fiji and the Pacific through contemporary dance. She has two very cute babies, and a dancing machine husband that are all part of the story behind the success of the VOU Dance Company.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
