    I'd like to quote the late Mr. Zappa...

    I don't know much about dancin'
    That's why I got this song
    One of my legs is shorter than the other
    And both of my feet's too long
    'Course now right along with 'em
    I got no natural rythem
    But I go dancing every night
    Hoping one day I might get it right!

    --Elena (definitely a dancin' fool!)

    It is said that in certain puritan parts of the country, sex while standing is forbidden. It could lead to dancing!

    God, grant me the credit to pay for the dance events I cannot afford, the courage to limit myself to the ones I can, and the wisdom to stash money away to make up the difference.

    Oooh...there are too many favorites to put them all here. I guess if I can only pick one it will be:

    "Whatever you feel, just dance it!"

    Attributed to "Charlie" in "Center Stage."

    "Dance is the hidden language of the soul."
    -Martha Graham

    "I have performed for thousands when they found me exotic, the vogue, daring, but I have danced, at any given time, for about ten people.... They were the ones that left the theater forever different from the way they were when they came in. All of my long, long life, I have danced for those ten."
    -Ruth St. Denis

    and then a funny one.....

    "The trouble with nude dancing is that not everything stops when the music stops."
    -Robert Helpmann

    I wonder why the song lyrics, "Wiggle it just a little bit" keep running through my head. :roll: :lol:

    Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.
    - Martha Graham

    I love this quote :lol:

    I was at a leadership camp this past week and we stopped in at a local gift shop. One of the ladies with me found a beautiful wall hanging (which I had to purchase, of course), and here's what is said...

    "Where a dancer stands, that spot is holy ground; and where she walks, there are sequins."

    Made me immediately think of belly dance!
