When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire.

Angelina Jolie

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 Tharp

I copied my brother. He was a natural dancer. Graceful. People always asked did we study ballet. We never did.

Harold Nicholas

Figure skating is an unlikely Olympic event but its good television. It's sort of a combination of gymnastics and ballet. A little sexy too which doesn't hurt.

Andy Rooney

The ballet is a purely female thing; it is a woman, a garden of beautiful flowers, and man is the gardener.

George Balanchine

I had to quit ballet because it felt like a part of me was dying inside.

Zoe Saldana

The ballet embodies the notes of music. And sometimes you almost feel like you can see the notes dance up there on the stage.

Robert Caro

When I've done gymnastics, ballet or soccer - I was always trying to be the best. I'm really driven. Really driven.

Chloe Moretz

Mum, who had been a dancer with a small ballet company before she got married, was full of encouragement. She didn't say, 'This is really good, you should do this', She just encouraged us to do whatever we liked.

Dannii Minogue

I went away when I was 9 to a ballet school. I thought I wanted to be a dancer, but eight years of ballet cured me of that.

Juliet Mills

There would never have been a British Ballet without Diaghilev. He had a wonderful influence.

Ninette de Valois

In the Thirties, when I was in New York, I did the first surrealistic ballet in a show of mine.

Vincente Minnelli

I grew up in the theater and danced ballet atrociously.

Maureen O'Hara

You increase muscle bulk by training against resistance. For example, weights. And in ballet, this isn't the case.

Deborah Bull

I skate about 15 to 20 hours a week and also incorporate a lot of off-ice training. I take ballet and Pilates classes and lift weights with my physical therapist when I'm not on the ice.

Sasha Cohen

I had to do a tango with Raft and I learned to dance in ballet shoes with my knees bent.

Marie Windsor

I am both proud and honored to be on the Board of Directors for the Texas Ballet Theater.

Janine Turner

I've got no plans to be a ballet dancer at the moment.

Neil Patrick Harris

At the ballet, you really feel like you're in the presence of something outside the rest of your life. Higher than the rest of your life.

Robert Caro

Ballet is sort of a mystery to me. And I don't want to unravel that mystery.

Robert Caro

Everything seems to be going faster and faster. It's really harder to create something that endures. The New York City Ballet has succeeded in doing that.

Robert Caro

I deliberately made an effort not to become an expert on the ballet.

Robert Caro

I like new ballets because they're totally new. As you get older, new experiences are harder and harder to come by, so it's pretty great to have a new experience.

Robert Caro

I never went to a ballet until I was 45 years old. I don't know why.

Robert Caro

Sometimes during a ballet I'll look around and see all these rows of intent faces, concentrating on this beautiful thing up on the stage.

Robert Caro

The moment the curtain rose on that first ballet, I knew something wonderful and new had come into my life. I can still see the first scene. The ballet was Divertimento No. 15.

Robert Caro

The New York City Ballet is obviously speaking to a whole new generation and bringing it the same wonder and beauty that it brought previous generations.

Robert Caro

I do take class because I still dance, and yes, I do slip into class with the Royal Ballet from time to time.

Deborah Bull

Dancing is a tough career, but I'm glad I spent it at the Royal Ballet.

Deborah Bull

I went to art school when I was little. I took ballet lessons. I played a little kick ball. I was sort of into everything because I had too much energy and I didn't know where to put it. When I was a preteen, I got into singing, and became really obsessed with it.

Amanda Seyfried

I will say a lot of dancers do such beautiful things for their body and then they smoke a cigarette. I've never been a smoker, but I realized after taking yoga . . . in ballet you're not encouraged to do a lot of breathing. I think in a weird way, a lot of dancers find relief in actually breathing.

Elizabeth Berkley

I wanted so badly to study ballet, but it was really all about wearing the tutu.

Elle Macpherson

One of the few things in dance to match the Royal Ballet's curtain calls is the Royal Ballet's dancing.

Clive Barnes

My Mom is a ballet director, so I had this idea in me that classical training is the best foundation for anything you do, so I wanted to get a classical background and voice.

Shuler Hensley

My background is somewhat unusual, as I trained to be a ballet dancer. I worked in the theatre for eight or nine years as a contemporary dancer. But as an actor one does read Shakespeare and does try to learn the classics.

William Kempe

You can't drink on an eight hour flight, pass out, and then go onstage... well you can, but then you're Spandau Ballet.

Robert Smith

Most ballet teachers in the United States are terrible. If they were in medicine, everyone would be poisoned.

George Balanchine

In my ballets, woman is first. Men are consorts. God made men to sing the praises of women. They are not equal to men: They are better.

George Balanchine

In ballet a complicated story is impossible to tell... we can't dance synonyms.

George Balanchine

I grew up studying ballet; I grew up honing my craft.

Janice Dickinson

For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That's all I did. I had no other social life. I don't want my life to be like that now. I've spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun.

Gary Kemp

It was something I was more interested in myself. When I went to see my sister dance at ballet, I was really into costumes and the arts, and my family was also supportive of whatever me and my sister wanted to do. I would say I pushed myself the most to be into design.

Christian Siriano

I'm very flower-like. I love classical music. I go to ballet and I cry. There's nothing so beautiful.

Michael Gambon

I started with ballet and then my cousin Sarah introduced me to her tap teachers.

Adam Garcia

Dancing for the length of time that I did, it centered me in such a way to be really in tune with my body, and I just feel like I'm physically able to do things because of my ballet background. Without ballet, I don't think I'd look graceful at all on screen.

Zoe Saldana

I was serious about ballet for a long time, but my mom got me into tap and jazz and modern and hip-hop, and I was one of those over-lessoned children.

Greta Gerwig

I was a dancer from a young age. My parents were dancers; we were taken to a lot of ballet as children. It occurred to me that what I liked more than dancing the steps was acting the story of whatever particular performance I was taking part in.

Elizabeth Debicki

Wrestling is ballet with violence.

Jesse Ventura

God comes to us in theater 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

I started taking ballet lessons when I was three and a half and I still take dance classes.

Oksana Baiul

If a ballet dancer falls over, it's knowing how to get out looking clumsy that counts.

Ritchie Blackmore

The real beauty of it - key to my life was playing key chords on a banjo. For somebody else it may be a golf club that mom and dad put in their hands or a baseball or ballet lessons. Real gift to give to me and put it in writing.

Vince Gill

My grandmother had a Miss Margaret's School of Dance to teach tap and ballet to kids, but I never studied it. I was raised a Mormon and they're dancing fools. It's the only vice they have - dancing.

Michelle Shocked

I took several years of dance lessons that included ballet, tap and jazz. They helped a great deal with body control, balance, a sense of rhythm, and timing.

Lynn Swann

Classical ballet will never die.

Ninette de Valois

Acting is a sense of wonder and magic and mystery for me and when life takes me on a new journey, I simply remember the smile my first ballet recital put on my face and I move forward.

Andrea Thompson

I used to dance when I was younger - ballet and modern dance.

Nastassja Kinski

In fact, ballet companies did not exist in the Midwest when I was a child.

Suzanne Farrell

The particular ballet was not so important as the fact that I was physically healthy, and capable of getting out there and dancing as often as possible.

Suzanne Farrell

I didn't care too much for ballet, because you had to be more disciplined, and you sort of looked like everyone else. It required a certain kind of conformity that I didn't feel like I wanted to do.

Suzanne Farrell

On the other hand, I think it is wonderful for everyone to take ballet classes, at any age. It gives you a discipline, it gives you a place to go. It gives you some control in your life.

Suzanne Farrell

I have ballet class every other day for two hours. And for "Six Feet Under", last week there was a sequence where I had to do a whole choreographed dance number, so I had four hours of dance practice every day.

Michelle Trachtenberg

I wanted to give people - which is fairly bizarre considering my whole life is contemporary dance really - I wanted to give people a really fulfilling sense that they had seen a white classical ballet - in a very pure form.

Graeme Murphy

There might've been wires, but I have this ability to make myself light. Well you know what, in ballet, when you kind of lift yourself here, it's all up in the head.

Albert Finney
