Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
A lot of people insisted on a wall between modern dance and ballet. I'm beginning to think that walls are very unhealthy things.
Dance has never been a particularly easy life, and everybody knows that.
I'm not one who divides music, dance or art into various categories. Either something works, or it doesn't.
I would have to challenge the term, modern dance. I don't really use that term in relation to my work. I simply think of it as dancing. I think of it as moving.
I often say that in making dances I can make a world where I think things are done morally, done democratically, done honestly.
With each piece I've completed I have worked to make it intact, and each of them has been an equal high. It's like children. A mother refuses to pick out one as a favorite, and I can't do any better with the dances.
