My favourite dance quotes

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.” 
                                                                                     - William W.Purkey

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” 
                                                                                     - Voltaire  

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” 
                                                                                     - Friedrich Nietzsche

“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.” 

                                                                                    - Rumi

“Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” 

“People have asked me why I chose to be a dancer. I did not choose. I was chosen to be a dancer, and with that, you live all your life. ” 

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul” 

                                                                                   - Martha Graham

“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to to dance better than myself.” 
                                                                                   - Mikhail Baryshnikov

When I dance, I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only be joyful and whole, that is why I dance. 

                                                                                   - Hans Bos

If I can not dance, I shall die!
                                                              - Anna Pavlova

To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak.

                                                                                   - Indian saying

Dance every performance as if it were your last. 
                                                                                  - Eric Bruhn

The dance is the mother of the arts. Music and poetry exist in time; painting and architecture in space. But the dance lives at once in time and space. 

                                                                                   - Curt Sachs
