Dance: A Celebration of Being Human

I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of mankind–the landscape of the human soul….I think the reason dance has held such an ageless magic for the world is that it has been the symbol of the performance of living.”~Martha Graham

The next time you look into the mirror, just look at the way the ears rest next to the head; look at the way the hairline grows; think of all the little bones in your wrist.  It is a miracle. And the dance is a celebration of that miracle.”~Martha Graham
