Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
The formal education that I received made little sense to me.
The rewards of dancing are very different from choreographing.
I never studied with Balanchine, but his work was very important to me.
Dance has never been a particularly easy life, and everybody knows that.
I have the wherewithal to challenge myself for my entire life. That's a great gift.
It is extremely arrogant and very foolish to think that you can ever outwit your audience.
I was privileged to be able to study a year with Martha Graham, the last year she was teaching.
I think that anyone who's pushed to do the very best that they can is privileged. It's a luxury.
The only thing I fear more than change is no change. The business of being static makes me nuts.
