    My favorite is one I have read many times here at DF:

    "Dance is not the answer. Dance is the question. Yes is the answer."

    I love it!!!

    I don't remember who said it, but:

    "Those who danced were thought insane by those who could not hear the music."

    How's about a dance quote from a movie?

    Geraldine Chaplin at the end of Hable con Ella ("Talk To Her"):
    "Soy maestra de baile. Nada es sencillo."
    ("I'm a dance teacher [so I know that] nothing is simple.")

    Not a quote as such but I also like Sagitta's description of dance as trinity.
