How can we know the dancer from the dance? ~William Butler Yeats
There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. ~Edwin Denby
Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dancing is like dreaming with your feet! ~Constanze
You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart. ~Author Unknown
At the ballet, you really feel like you're in the presence of something outside the rest of your life. Higher than the rest of your life. Robert Caro
Ballet is completely unnatural to the body, just being turned-out... it's not the way your body is supposed to function, so you actually train your body to be a different structure than you were born with.
Dad worked in a warehouse when I was little and I didn't see him for three years as he was doing all the overtime God gave him to buy me newballet shoes, or a new tutu.
“Ballet is a dance executed by the human soul.”- Alexander Pushkin
”You don't have to know about ballet to enjoy it,
all you have to do is look at it.” - Edwin Denby
”Most people think of ballet as children in little tutus.
They don't know it is sweat, blood and tears as well!” - Nan Keating
”Letting go of perfectionism,
so ingrained in the nature of a ballet dancer,
can be the most difficult thing.” - Author Unknown
“Common sense would tell parents
never to send their children to a ballet school.
Common sense would tell teenagers
that there is a wider and happier world
beyond the grueling strictures of daily barre and class.
Common sense would tell the graduating student
that there are infinitely superior ways of making money
than joining a professional ballet company.
Common sense would tell a young dancer
that very few (laughably few) of his or her colleagues
will ever make it to the top or even near the top.
Yet... there remains the dance and the dancer.” - Author Unknown
“Ballet is only good when it is great.” - Arlene Croce
Thumbelina, Thumbelina tiny little thing
Thumbelina dance, Thumbelina sing
Thumbelina what's the difference if you're very small?
When your heart is full of love you're nine feet tall
Though you're no bigger than my thumb
Than my thumb, than my thumb
Sweet Thumbelina don't be glum
Now now now, ah ah ah, come come come Danny Kaye:
