«To dance is above all to communicate, to unite, to join together and to touch others on a fundamental level of existence. Dance is union; union of one human being with another; one person with the cosmos; one human being with God. The spoken language remains within the dominance of a delusion. Words, although seemingly easy to comprehend, can hide images that deceive and lead us into a never-ending labyrinth of Babel like semantics.
Extended conversation more often leads to argument than to concord among man. To dance is also to speak then essential language of animals, to communicate with stone, to understand the song of the sea and the message in the wind, to discover with the stars, to approach the heights of existence itself. To dance is to transcend our poor human condition and to join fully in the profound life of cosmos».
