“Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists." -Michael Jackson
A lot of people insisted on a wall between modern dance and ballet. I'm beginning to think that walls are very unhealthy things.
- Twyla Tarp
"You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive."—Merce Cunningham
Anna Lee Green
Dance is for everybody. I believe that the dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people. – Alvin Ailey
