Ghi has performed in concert with several Symphony Orchestras (New Mexico, Long Beach, Costa Mesa) and was commissioned the creation of a tango ballet for the Tulsa Ballet Dance Company. She and her partner were the feature dancers on the PBS special ‘Tango Magic’ with Pablo Ziegler and the Orpheus Orchestra and had the honor of being the first non-Asians ever invited to perform at the Imperial Theater inTokyo.

In 2017 and 2018, Ghi served as a judge at the‘Tango Mundial,’ the World Competition for Argentine Tango. Ghi’s new performance company creates a fusion between ArgentineTango and other art forms, such a theater, visual arts, opera and other styles of dance.
