You never know why you really dance. Do you dance for people at the company? Do you dance for people that like you very much? Now I dance just for me. I’m not afraid anymore. - Aurelie Dupont to Time Out NY (via straightenthoseknees)

It’s not only the technique that matters, but rather what’s in your soul. If your soul is beautiful, you’re beautiful in all ways. - young ballerina of Vaganova Ballet Academy (via babelesque)

What’s the toughest part of being a dancer?Denying yourself things and trying to achieve your goals no matter what. Ballet is not just hard work, it’s unusually hard work, and a lot of talented ballerinas fail because they can’t face all the hardship that comes in their way. Sometimes everything goes against you, and you still have to keep fighting.

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 (via sysigie)
