“What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” ~ George Eliot
“A Soulfuldancer is a lover of life, of dance, of love, a lover of the present moment. Soulfuldancing is communing with your divine self, your higher self. It’s when ego disappears and you become one with the divine. It is bliss. It is joy. It is peace. It is all knowing. It is meditation. It is creativity. It is oneness.” Rosangel Perez
“Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.” Erich Fromm
“You gotta free your feet before you can free your mind Lyn.” Bill Jango from “Men Who Stare at Goats”
“Hold your hands out gently. Ask others to do the same. See how different each person looks. Each person has their own unique and natural beauty. Use this natural beauty when you dance. Respect your individuality.” -–Artemis
“The artist alone sees spirits. But after he has told of their appearing to him, everybody sees them.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” ~ Martha Graham
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ~ Friedrich Nietzche
“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” ~ Martha Graham
“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair…” ~ Susan Polis Schutz
“Dancing is surely the most basic and relevant of all forms of expression. Nothing else can so effectively give outward form to an inner experience. Poetry and music exist in time. Painting and architecture are a part of space. But only the dance lives at once in both space and time. In it the creator and the thing created, the artist and the expression, are one. Each participates completely in the other. There could be no better metaphor for an understanding of the mechanics of the cosmos.” ~ Lyall Watson, Gifts of Unknown Things: A True Story of Nature, Healing, and Initiation from Indonesia’s Dancing Island
“Most dancers I know, especially the talented and successful ones, seem to possess [my dog's] knack for living moment to moment. You see, their idea of time is related to those infinitely short moments when they are onstage being their superselves.” ~ Paul Taylor

- When did you stop singing?
- When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
- When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?”
