Dance Sayings

The first step in every dance is a smile.

Fear not mistakes
We just call them variations.

To dance or not to dance ... what a STUPID question !

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

God gave you toes so pointe them !

You can only perform as well as you do in practice.

You cannot make a pointe if you do not understand the details.

When in doubt ... dance!

You wouldn't understand, it's a dance thing.

When the going gets tough, the tough go dancing!

Dance is not an answer. Dance is a question.
"Yes!" is the answer.

Dancers turn out better.

Discover the pointe ... dance !

You have never seen a real workout
until you have seen a dancer practice.

If you say you can you can,
but if you say you can't you're right!

You know you're dancing when tears of pain
and happiness blend in with your sweat.

Dance is life, everything else is just details.

Ballerinas always have a POINTE !

Dancers: Football players with talent.

If dance were easy it would be called football.

Football isn't a contact sport; it's a collision sport.
Dancing is a contact sport.
— Vince Lombardi

Been there ... danced that ...

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

It's not sweat, it's glow.

Only the wise can dance the rhythm of life.

Just shut up and dance!

Dancing with the feet is one thing,
but dancing with the heart is another.

Socrates learned to dance when he was 70 because he
felt that an essential part of himself had been neglected.

It has been said that Winston Churchill
was born in a ladies' room during a dance.

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

Dance isn't just about fancy footwork.
It requires grace, discipline, and major muscles.

  1. Beginning dancer. Knows nothing.
  2. Intermediate dancer. Knows everything. Too good to dance with beginners.
  3. Advanced dancer. Dances everything, especially with beginners.

You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart.

The ballet toe shoe is one of the few instruments
of torture to survive intact into our time.

It's not the turning that is hard in pirouettes,
it's that you gotta keep on doin' it!

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Let them praise His name in the dance:
let them sing praises unto Him with the tamborine and harp.
— Psalm 149:3 KJV

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing:
Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness.
Psalm 30:11 KJV

What we are is God's gift to us.
What we become is our gift to God.

Eleanor Powell
The Queen of Tap Dance
