Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.

Erol Ozan

The ballet needs to tell its own story in such a way it can be received without having to be translated into language.

Twyla Tharp

Ballet is its own being. It has its own vocabulary. I feel as if I am in a different world when I am in the ballet studio.

Kiernan Shipka

Dancing centred me in such a way to be really in tune with my body. Without ballet, I don't think I'd look graceful at all on screen.

Zoe Saldana

If anything at all, perfection is not when there is nothing to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Maria Tallchief

God comes to us in theatre in the way we communicate with each other, whether it be a symphony orchestra, or a wonderful ballet, or a beautiful painting, or a play. It's a way of expressing our humanity.

Julie Harris
