    This is a good place for a Groucho Marx quote:

    A man asks TWO women to dance, and one lady says, "Why, that's bigamy!"

    Groucho replies, "That's big of both of us!"

    Absolutely gonna have to commit this one to memory cos I'm always in need of this sort of quote. :D

    The actual quote is

    "Technique - bodily control - must be mastered only because the body must not stand in the way of the soul's expression."

    One of my favourites and much requoted by myself :D

    Since this thread went quiet I googled for dance quotes and the first one I found really spoke to me:

    "Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music." ~William Stafford

    Nice! Reminds me of something personal. According to my parents as a child I was singing all the time. They enrolled me in a choir. As a result I never sang anything anymore outside of a choir practice or concert. I don't remember the transition, it was something I never thought about, but for my parents it was quite obvious.

    My uncle always loved to dance the polka. When he was in his mid-eighties his doctor said he should slow down, not stress his heart - he shouldn't dance too much. My uncle said "If I can't dance I might as well die."
    He's now 96 and has aged quite a bit. He uses a walker but when he hears a polka he does his basic step in place while holding onto the walker (and with someone holding onto him so he doesn't topple over).

    ‎"'I have a dream...that my children will one day dance in a salsa scene where they will not be judged by the style of their salsa nor the name of their team, but by the passion of their dancing' (Thank you Dr. King!!!)"
