Ballet Class Quotes by Isadora Duncan, John Dryden, Martha Graham, Misty Copeland, Merce Cunningham, W. H. Auden and many others.
I grew up as a dancer, and music and dance are so closely tied, that in ballet class you’re listening to all this classical music, and in modern class you’re working with a live drummer. It was something that always made me feel really comfortable and I’ve had a connection to since the beginning.

Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays.
Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.

Dance, dance, dance till you drop.
Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.
