Solo dancing does not exist: the dancer dances with the floor: add another dancer and you have a quartet: each dance with the other and each with the floor.

I cannot write in verse, for I am no poet.

I cannot arrange the parts of speech with such art as to produce effects of light and shade, for I am no painter. Even by signs and gestures I cannot express my thoughts and feelings, for I am no dancer. But I can do so by means of sounds, for I am a musician.

One is born to be a dancer. No teacher can work miracles, nor will years of training make a good dancer of an untalented pupil.

A Pavlova is no one's pupil but God's.
