Quotes about Dancing & Dancers

Dancers are a special breed. They know that the art of dancing connects you to yourself and the world around you in ways few things can. Dance frees you from the shackles of the world, provides a way to express your deepest feelings and gives you a tool to communicate the things you could never put into words. Dance is one of the most fundamental artforms, where your own body is your instrument. Learn to play it well, so your soul may become visible...
