LIKE//Public talk with Silvia Ghiață
"Ever since childhood I've been fascinated by dancing. My mother took me to the ballet class at the Army House to discover this art. I was five years old, this was happening in the '50s. I attended both the music school and the choreography high school for four years, and after that I chose Dance.
Fast forward to 1990. I was a TV host at TVR when the revolution came. And I chose... DANCE! I came up with the project The World of Dance... It lasted for 15 years! I was happy that I could show the world something else beside classical ballet. That dance can mean something other than convention, pointe, convention, pointe.
Angelin Preljoçaj, Karine Saporta, Mats Ek, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Vava Ștefănescu, Florin Fieroiu, Cosmin Manolescu, Mihai Mihalcea and so many other names... 15 years of satisfaction and love for DANCE.” (Silvia Ghiață)
