What are the TOP 10 dance quotes by Martha Graham?

  1. Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.

  2. Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It's a miracle, and the dance is a celebration of that miracle.

  3. Dance is the hidden language of the soul

  4. Nothing is more revealing than movement.

  5. All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.

  6. We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance.

  7. We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.

  8. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.

  9. Every dance is a kind of fever chart, a graph of the heart.

  10. There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
