    My favorite dance studio just upgraded their web site in a huge way, and the new site has some awesome quotes.

    I can't make it a link because it's a commercial site (DF rules), but copy and paste this into your browser's location bar:

    Favorite dance quotes and how does it speak to you........

    So far reading some of the posts here on DF, some of the signatures and/or dance quotes really spoke to me. Here are some of the ones that struck me, I really liked and hit home for me:

    Life may not turn out to be the party we'd hoped for.......but while we are there, we might as well DANCE! by SalsaChinita -- Life has not always been the grandest, but dance is by saving grace. If it weren't for dance, I don't know what I'd do to keep myself alive and happy.

    The feet may learn the steps, but only the spirit can dance. by Dancin_Feet -- Wow, this speaks volumes for me and made me realize why I feel so alive when I'm dancing. Sometimes in life, I feel stuck because there are certain things that I must do because of necessity, survival, social pressure, practicality etc. But with dance, it is one thing that I feel I can just let myself be, let my spirit free and shine. I can be whoever I want to be at the moment. And, that can be such a freeing and liberating thing. There isn't much else that I have experienced that can help me stay in the moment like that other than dance, to allow me to free my spirit and have fun all at the same time.

    What are your favorites dance quotes here on DF or anywhere else and how does it strike a chord with you. How does it speak to you?

    When you take dancing lessons, you learn steps and you learn steps and you learn steps. It can go on for a long time. And then one day, you just learn to dance, and it is so different. --Bill Austin

    This is Sagitta's signature and I love it! It is a true statement of the difference between doing moves on music and dancing... between focus on technique and forget about music on the one side and let the music fill your soul on the other. I am still at the "dane lessons" part, I am afraid...

    :oops: :oops: :oops:

    And the signature of BorikenSalsero... I think he no longer uses it, but I hope I remember it well:

    Dancing is like orchestrating a song. Everybody can use the same moves, but who is going to make it a hit? A good dancer appeals to your reason, but a great dancer appeals to your emotions. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    (had to edit as I remember it a little worng - and he still uses it!)

    I'd vote for Sagitta's as my favorite too (is that one of the categories of the Dance Forum Awards?)

    I like Sagitta's sig too.

    I read it a little different, though. I think of all the dance teaching that consists just of steps and drives me mad, and then the kinds of teaching that actually teaches how to dance...
