Some dance mottos to bring up your day.
On with dance, let joy be unconfined, is my motto; whether there’s any dance to dance or any joy to unconfined. – Mark Twain
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels. – Faith Whittlesey
To shake your rump is to be environmentally aware. – David Byrne
We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance. – Martha Graham
They seldom looked happy. They passed one another without a word in the elevator, like silent shades in hell, hell-bent on their next look from a handsome stranger. Their next rush from a popper. The next song that turned their bones to jelly and left them all on the dance floor with heads back, eyes nearly closed, in the ecstasy of saints receiving the stigmata. – Andrew Holleran
When we were at school we were taught to sing the songs of the Europeans. How many of us were taught the songs of the Wanyamwezi or of the Wahehe? Many of us have learnt to dance the rumba, or the cha cha, to rock and roll and to twist and even to dance the waltz and foxtrot. But how many of us can dance, or have even heard of the gombe sugu, the mangala, nyang umumi, kiduo, or lele mama? – Julius Kambarge Nyerere
