The Dance

“Think of the magic of that foot 
upon which your whole weight rests.
It’s a miracle and the dance

is a celebration of that miracle.”
- Martha Graham

“Ballet is the one form of theater
where nobody speaks a foolish word all evening.
Nobody on the stage at least.”
- Edwin Denby
 "Ballet technique is arbitrary and very difficult.
It never becomes easy... it becomes possible.”
- Agnes de Mille

“Dancers keep looking for the perfect teacher
without realizing that it's all there within themselves.
You teach yourself; your teacher is a guide.
If you do not hear the advice,
corrections and words of your guide,
it makes no difference how great the teacher.
You will never dance.”

- Author Unknown
 "Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired." ~ Martha Graham

 When I miss class for one day, I know it. When I miss class for two days, my teacher knows it. When I miss class for three days, the audience knows it. -Rudolf Nureyev-

“No one can arrive from being talented alone.  God gives talent; work transforms talent into genius.”

Movement without meaning is just exercise.”
