Real Life

Try Our Best

“Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best.”

Time to Live

“You have mastered survival mode. Now it’s time to live.”

Strong Woman

“Dear strong woman, You are not intimidating. They are intimidated. There is a difference.”

New Places

“Going through things you never thought you’d go through will only take you places you never thought you’d get to.”


“Best thing we can do for kids…instead of teaching them how to always be successful, teach them how to respond when they are not successful.”

Always Dancing

“I’m not sure if the happier I am, the more I dance, or the more I dance, the happier I am…. Either way, I’ll be dancing.”

Teacher Friends

“Teacher friends have this special power where we can communicate with each other using only our eyes.”

Dance is Expression

“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 can be.”

Dance is Sacred

“In a society that worships love, freedom, and beauty, dance is sacred. It is a prayer for the future, a remembrance of the past, and a joyful exclamation of thanks for the present.”

Morning Dance

“The rule is you have to dance a little bit in the morning before you leave because it changes the way you walk out in the world.”
