"On with the dance! let joy be unconfined"

Clearly, this dance teacher, her faithful volunteers and her students understand this quote (source unknown): Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.

Some other great quotes, for one reason or (and?) another, about dancing:

Dancing is like dreaming with your feet! ~Constanze

I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. ~Japanese Proverb

Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals. ~Charles Baudelaire

Dancers are the athletes of God. ~Albert Einstein

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels. ~Faith Whittlesey

Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order. ~Samuel Beckett

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. ~William James

Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul's weather. ~Martha Graham
