“I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what is too deep to find for words.”
Ruth St. Denis

“The gods have meant that I should dance, and by the gods, I will dance!!! For in some mystic hour I shall move to the unheard rhythms of the cosmic orchestra of heaven, and you will know the language of my wordless poems, and will come to me... for that is why I dance."

"Los dioses me destinaron a bailar, ¡y por los dioses bailaré! Pues en alguna hora mística me moveré a los ritmos ináuditos de la orquesta cósmica del cielo, y conocerás el lenguaje de mis poemas sin palabras, y vendrás a mí... pues por éso es que bailo.”
Ruth St. Denis

“I want to dance always, to be good and not evil, and when it is all over not to have the feeling that I might have done better.”
Ruth St. Denis
