‘The dancers onstage personify the dance’

January 1, 2017

“It’s beautiful. It’s amazing. So spiritual. A lesson that I think we really do need to pay attention to—that humanity should be soft, we should look after each other and take care of each other, just be kind.”
***
“The dancers onstage personify the dance. They were the dance. The grace… the emotion. They reached it. My son was commenting at one point, he said when they are doing the jumps, you don’t hear the feet, so I started listening and I noticed that it was like they are floating and landing so soft, so as to not put a ripple in the earth. It just comes together.”
***
“I am just so humbled … to see how hard work has translated into something that is so much greater than any of us.”
***
“From start to finish … it was all just beautiful.”
