The Romantic Stage!

"If we seek the real source of the dance, if we go to nature, we find that the dance of the future is the dance of the past, the dance of eternity, and has been and always will be the same"     --------
"The movement of waves, of winds, of the earth 
is ever the same lasting harmony"
"The true dance is an expression of serenity; it is controlled by the profound rhythm of inner emotion". 
"Emotion does not reach the moment of frenzy out of a spurt of action; 
it broods first, it sleeps like the life in the seed, and it unfolds with a gentle slowness".
"The Greeks understood the continuing beauty of a movement that mounted, that spread, 
that ended with a promise of rebirth".
"The Dance - it is the rhythm of all that dies in order to live again; it is the eternal rising of the sun."
" It is the mission of all art to express the highest and most beautiful ideals of man.
To express what is the most moral, healthful and beautiful in art" - 
"This is the mission of the dancer, and to this I dedicate my life."
