More About This Book

Overview

The Quotable Dancer—published by Blue Eyed Books—contains 1300 humorous dance quotes from stage & big screen, as well as an extensive A-Z of general dance topics and an all-embracing card of dance styles from Classical Ballet to Street Dance…

"Mixing Ballet and Breakdance is like mixing apples and space-ships."
Touré in USA Today (2001)

The book also contains the fun things said by and about famous dancers such as: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Busby Berkeley, Martha Graham, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Bob Fosse, Nijinsky, John Travolta, Patrick Swayze, Michael Jackson, Michael Flatley, Savion Glover, even Mumbles the Penguin & Wall-E.

"Michael Jackson's dance moves were angular and twitchy, hinting at digital stops and starts rather than analog fluidity—except, of course, for his famous Moonwalk, the image of someone striding gracefully without ever leaving center stage."
Jon Pareles in The New York Times (2009)

With dance being a global phenomenon, this book reflects the cosmopolitan appeal of the terpsichorean art. With entries from all over the world and from down the centuries, this book still retains a firm focus on and the idealogical identity of dance the world over.

"The Soft-Shoe Shuffle, the wistful Tom Sawyerish scuffing of the stage boards that says Americans experience an isolating loneliness as if by the provenance of birth."
T.E. Kalem in Time magazine (1975)

"Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health—it rusts your spirit and your hips."
Adabella Radici

"Dancing is beautiful and sexy, unless it's at an open-bar wedding reception."
Ross Werland in The Chicago Tribune (2009)

"Bad dancing is more fun to watch than bad singing is to listen to."
Dana Stevens on Slate.com (2005)

"Choreography is like moisture in the mouth of an orator."
David Lichine

"A lot of people insisted on a wall between Modern Dance and Ballet. I'm beginning to think that walls are very unhealthy things."
Twyla Tharp

"My love of my life is dancing, things like Tap, Modern, Ballet and Jazz. Also I love singing, even though my voice sounds awful, and watching me dance is like watching an elephant, so no-one does!"
Princess Diana, Letter to her nanny Mary Clarke (1978)

"I'm not an egomaniac like a lot of people say. But I am the world's best dancer, that's for sure."
Michael Flatley
