Dance quotes


At one point I considered including an inspiring dance quote somewhere in the guide, but cooled to the idea. I had got as far as tracking down some that seemed quite relevant, and which may be of interest. You can find more dance quotes on the internet at: 

This is the oldest, and seems to describe dancing in a circle:

“Come, knit hands, and beat the ground, in a light fantastic round”.

John Milton (1608 – 1674)

This quote makes the point that you can’t learn to dance from a book:

“Dance isn’t something that can be explained in words. It has to be danced.”

Paige Arden (Ballet dancer)

But on the other hand reading is harmless:

“Let us read and let us dance – two amusements that will never do any harm to the world”.

Voltaire (1694 – 1778)

And the importance of just dancing, and not thinking about it too hard:

“Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order”.

Samuel Beckett (1906 – 1989)

“Dance – an art form. The body – an instrument. Learn to play the instrument and master the art form”.

Debbie Dee

Just get out and dance:

“Dance till the stars come down from the rafters. Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop”.

W.H. Auden

“I don’t need to hug or hold you tight, I just want to dance with you all night. In this world there’s nothing I would rather do, ’cause I’m happy just to dance with you”

The Beatles
