In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Andra Muntenasu

I discovered the dance late. And later I managed to make it a way of expressing or rejecting the emotions inside me. I still discover it, I still try to understand where it comes from. I do not see much when dancing. It's a universe far from what's real around me. But I feel it! It's me and the music, me and the ground under my feet or the floor that I'm not letting off.
