Quote by Martha Graham
The body is your instrument in dance, but your art is outside that creature, the body.
This quote suggests that while the body is essential for expressing oneself in dance, the true art lies beyond the physical form. It implies that dance is more than just movement; it is about conveying emotions, thoughts, and stories through the body. It highlights the idea that dancers should strive to transcend their physical limitations and tap into a deeper level of expression that goes beyond mere technique or athleticism. The quote invites dancers to explore the vast creative possibilities and spiritual dimensions that can be brought forth through their art.
I ended up dropping out of high school. I'm a high school dropout, which I'm not proud to say, ... I had some teachers that I still think of fondly and were amazing to me. But I had other teachers who said, 'You know what? This dream of yours is a hobby. When are you going to give it up?' I had teachers who I could tell didn't want to be there. And I just couldn't get inspired by someone who didn't want to be there
The British have been more up for it than the Americans were, particularly with respect to nudity in the show. In Europe there are adverts that show the breasts, so people are less frightened of that aspect of the show. Americans can withstand incredible violence on TV shows - which, as I come from England and Canada, I find difficult to stomach - but they are more puritanical when it comes to nudity on screen.
