:?: What is your favorite dance quote(s)?
"Dancing: the vertical expression of a horizontal desire legalized by music."
- George Bernard Shaw
Any competitor that says: "I compete just for the fun of it!"
Hello Balletblueyes. Welcome to the DF.
My favorite: Never see Salsa as what you can be, but rather what you are. See it with the soul, not the mind. -Borikensalsero
i like that
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."
"Comparing yourself to another dancer is like comparing apples and oranges because if you both try to be like each other you won't get anywhere"
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.")
Can I count my signature quote?
"Shut up and dance!"
"Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame."
"Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
Johnny Castle from the movie Dirty Dancing
This is also my favourite!
Not a quote as such but I also like Sagitta's description of dance as trinity.
That's coming on this weekend. Bravo, I think. 8)
I confess I still haven't seen Dirty Dancing...
You haven't missed much, if you ask me!
I have a favorite quote that was on a shirt I saw. It is.....
Remember everything that Fred Astair did, Ginger Rodgers did backwards and in high heels.
I love that quote!!
I use it for my sig.
"Dance is Music made Visible."
"I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance."
"Why walk, when you can Dance?"
Hi Kate!!! Nice to see you around.
