    Boris Lermontov: Why do you want to dance?
    Victoria Page: Why do you want to live?
    Boris Lermontov: Well I don't know exactly why, er, but I must.
    Victoria Page: That's my answer too.
    -The Red Shoes


    This echoes my feelings about dance. It's just something I have to do :)

    Saw this recently, and it resonated with me:

    Why would one dig in like a pit bull; this is not something that can be held. Something like that, it drives you; it digs into YOU! I would amend to:

    "You're lucky if you can find even one thing in a
    lifetime that inspires you to push beyond the
    accepted, to fight the established, to run the
    razor's edge and discover your limits are only
    what you make them. But if you ever do find
    such a thing, spread your wings
    and let it propel you to heaven."

    "Why do I dance? Dance is my medicine. It's the scream which eases for a while the terrible frustration common to all human beings who because of race, creed, or color are 'invisible.' Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice."
