Here are some of my favourite dance quotes to inspire Toronto Belly dancers and all dancers of all genres world-wide. Enjoy!
“Bellydance is the only dance which expresses womens’ femininity in its entirety.” Eden Fieldstone
“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul”

Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
Dancers are athletes of God.
Let us read and let us dance — two amusements that will never do any harm to the world.
The dance: a minimum of explanation, a minimum of anecdotes, and a maximum of sensations
Dance is the poetic baring of the soul through motion.
Dance is like life, it exists as you’re flitting through it, and when it’s over, it’s done.
If dancing were any easier it would be called football.
Dance is the hidden language of the soul.
Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances.
Those who dance are considered insane by those who can’t hear the music.
Without music, life would be a mistake… I would only believe in a God who knew how to dance.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.
You must have chaos within you to give rise to a dancing star.
I would believe only in a god that knows how to dance.
To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak.
George Bernard Shaw
Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire.
There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.
There are times when the simple dignity of movement can fulfill the function of a volume of words.
The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.
Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody is watching.
I do everything the man does, only backwards and in high heels!
