Silvina Fabars just received the Dance National Award. A teacher urbi et orbi , she learned the news in Camaguey , where she teaches with the same fervor and love for a discipline that has put her in charge of classrooms in half the world, from England and Japan to Iraq …
The choreographer Iván Tenorio headed the jury that awarded the first figure of the National Folkloric Ensemble of Cuba , ahead of the prestigious dancers Maria Elena Llorente ( National Ballet of Cuba ) , Marianela Boan ( Contemporary Dance ) , Marisel Godoy ( Codanza ) and Clara Luz Rodriguez.
Upon learning of her election, in the event Rumbatéate , Silvina started to sweat more than if she were teaching classes , or embodying a Yoruba deity in her frenzied dancing … No irreverently of her skills as a dancer, Tenorio emphasized that this award recognizes mainly the great teacher , always willing to share her knowledge .
In fact, she currently trains both professional dancers of the Maraguán group in Camagüey, and children of the local House of Culture. She takes on that perhaps with that militant faith of the ideals she grew with in her native Realengo 18, whose wild beauty bolted the pen of great Pablo de la Torriente 80 years ago .
Nicknamed the Ebony Goddess of the National Folkloric Ballet, Fabars has been from guerrilla to literacy teacher, but her passion is dancing, as she told exclusively to OnCuba in an interview with us earlier this year, and that we reproduce again as a gift to the deserving winner of the National Dance Award-2014.
