I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of man—the landscape of his soul. I hope that every dance I do reveals something of myself or some wonderful thing a human being can be. It is the unknown—whether it is the myths or the legends or the rituals that give us our memories. It is the eternal pulse of life, the utter desire. -Martha Graham

Dance is for everybody. I believe that the dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people. -Alvin Ailey

This world without a Leopard, who’d want to be here? -Diana Vreeland
