“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” 
“Dance is the song of the body.” 
“Where ever a dancer stands is holy ground.”
“Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul’s weather to all who can read it.”
― Martha Graham

“I don’t want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance. ” 
“Someone once said that dancers work just as hard as policemen, always alert, always tense, but see policemen don’t have to be beautiful at the same time.”
― George Balanchine

“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” 
― Twyla Tharp

“Technical perfection is insufficient. It is an orphan without the true soul of a dancer.”
 – Sylvie Guillium

“Real men don’t lift weights, they lift women.” 
― Every male ballet dancer

“Lermontov: Why do you want to dance?
Vicky: Why do you want to live?
Lermontov: Well, I don’t know exactly why, but… I must.
Vicky: That’s my answer too.” 
― The Red Shoes

“If I can not dance, I shall die!” 
“I danced from the moment I could stand.”
Anna Pavlova

Ballet technique is arbitrary and very difficult. It never becomes easy–it becomes possible. The effort involved in making a dancer’s body is so long and relentless, in many instances painful, the effort to maintain the technique so grueling that unless a certain satisfaction is derived from the disciplining and the punishing, the pace could not be maintained. 
Agnes de Mille

The most essential thing in dance discipline is devotion, the steadfast and willing devotion to the labor that makes the classwork not a gymnastic hour and a half, or at the lowest level, a daily drudgery, but a devotion that allows the classroom discipline to become moments of dancing too… 
– Merce Cunningham
