#1. I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche. - Author: Elizabeth Olsen
Corvino Ballet quotes by Elizabeth Olsen
#2. What a horse does under compulsion he does blindly, and his performance is no more beautiful than would be that of a ballet-dancer taught by whip and goad. The performances of horse or man so treated would seem to be displays of clumsy gestures rather than of grace and beauty. What we need is that the horse should of his own accord exhibit his finest airs and paces at set signals. - Author: Temple Grandin
Corvino Ballet quotes by Temple Grandin
#3. Hip hop classes and ballet are what I've been keeping up with, and of course my usual abdominal workout, which consists of 500 sit-ups a session. Or I take a 30-minute abs class at my gym. But dance classes are a full-body cardio workout, which always brings me success and keeps me feeling great. - Author: Briana Evigan
Corvino Ballet quotes by Briana Evigan
#4. People come to see beauty, and I dance to give it to them. - Author: Judith Jamison
Corvino Ballet quotes by Judith Jamison

Corvino Ballet quotes by Camille Paglia
#6. I am very obsessed with ballet now because it is a very difficult sport and a beautiful one because it is not about money. It's not like playing football or tennis - dance has no sponsors, it's just for the beauty. Maybe it is the only last pure sport. - Author: Carine Roitfeld
Corvino Ballet quotes by Carine Roitfeld
#7. Finding ballet was like finding this missing piece of myself. - Author: Misty Copeland
Corvino Ballet quotes by Misty Copeland
#8. The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personally when they say 'no' - they may not be smart enough to say 'yes. - Author: Keith Olbermann
Corvino Ballet quotes by Keith Olbermann
#9. I suppose I'm the only person who remembers one of the most exciting of his ballets-it's the fruit of an unlikely collaboration between Nijinsky on the one hand and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on the other. - Author: Alan Bennett
Corvino Ballet quotes by Alan Bennett
#10. Even though I am a professional, and I know what the steps are, I don't quite know how I'm going to do them, because I haven't lived that moment yet. I always feel very insecure and I get very excited. - Author: Suzanne Farrell
Corvino Ballet quotes by Suzanne Farrell
#11. The only plan I've come up with is writing. I can write, because writing - unlike choreography, architecture, or conquering kingdoms - is a thing you can do when you're lonely and poor, and have no infrastructure, i.e., a ballet troupe or some cannons. Poor people can write. It's one of the few things poverty, and lack of connections, cannot stop you doing. - Author: Caitlin Moran
Corvino Ballet quotes by Caitlin Moran
#12. Slowly he walked into the room. Stalked, actually. That was the primitive side of him, how he felt. She didn't move. She simply watched him approach.
"I was afraid you weren't coming," Abby whispered after a moment and Dean caught the double entendre.
"Sweetheart, trust me when I say that where you're concerned, that's never going to be a problem. - Author: Samantha Chase
Corvino Ballet quotes by Samantha Chase
#13. She wasn't getting it. They never teased her. They never followed her around with their phones, trying to catch her in a compromising position. They never called her a ho-bag or a troll or said she danced like an elephant on crank. They never, not once, dribbled pee in her ballet bag or stuck shaved pubes in her ChapStick. They never told her she wouldn't ever be good enough to make the New York City Ballet, and that they'd wave to her from the stage, maybe, one day, if they remembered who she was when they were famous. - Author: Nova Ren Suma
Corvino Ballet quotes by Nova Ren Suma
#14. It'd be very difficult to cast me as a ballet dancer. Everybody is, in some sense, controlled by their size and their gender. I'm not going to be allowed to play the part that Denzel Washington plays. - Author: Brian Dennehy
Corvino Ballet quotes by Brian Dennehy
#15. Dancing is being trusted with other people's guts; choreographing is trusting other people with yours. When I choreograph I'm giving a dancer something to do and trusting the dancer to do it and build on it. - Author: Judith Jamison
Corvino Ballet quotes by Judith Jamison
#16. Degas was obsessed by the art of classical ballet, because to him it said something about the human condition. He was not a balletomane looking for an alternative world to escape into. Dance offered him a display in which he could find, after much searching, certain human secrets. - Author: John Berger
Corvino Ballet quotes by John Berger

Corvino Ballet quotes by Oksana Baiul
#20. Despite the dangers and discomforts, climbing is for many an all-consuming passion. They interrupt, end, or never start their careers, focusing exclusively on completing the next climb. Climber Todd Skinner said free climbing means "going right to the edge" of your capabilites. For many climbers, this closeness to death - the risk of dying - produces an adrenaline rush that most other life experiences simply can't. It is what keeps many of them married to the sport. Probably no other sport creates such a feeling of oneness with Mother Nature. Attached to a mountainside by fingertips and toes, the climber necessarily becomes part of the rock - or else. One climber says that while scaling a granite face, she felt close to God, so intense was her relationship with the natural world.
Climbers speak of "floating" or "performing a ballet" over the rock, each placement of foot and each reach into a crack creating unity with the mountain. The sport is one of total engagement with the here-and-now, which frees the mind from everything else. Climbers' concentration is complete and focused. Their only thought is executing the next move...
Ken Bokelund... said: "Climbing for me has always been the strength of the body over the weakness of the mind. If you train so that you are very strong physically and you have mastered the techniques, then all that's left is believing. Freeing your mind of fear is the key. This is very difficult to do, but when you can achieve it, then you ar - Author: Bob Madgic
Corvino Ballet quotes by Bob Madgic

Corvino Ballet quotes by George Gascoigne
#22. I did ballet, jazz and flamenco from when I was five years old. And my professional career started with dancing in musicals. - Author: Jennifer Lopez
Corvino Ballet quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#23. One must shy away from questionable undertakings, even when they bear a high-sounding name. - Author: Albert Einstein
Corvino Ballet quotes by Albert Einstein
#24. I went away when I was 9 to a ballet school. I thought I wanted to be a dancer, but eight years of ballet cured me of that. - Author: Juliet Mills
Corvino Ballet quotes by Juliet Mills
#25. That kind of friendship doesn't just materialize at the end of the rainbow one morning in a soft-focus Hollywood haze. For it to last this long, and at such close quarters, some serious work had gone into it. Ask any ice-skater or ballet dancer or show jumper, anyone who lives by beautiful moving things: nothing takes as much work as effortlessness. - Author: Tana French
Corvino Ballet quotes by Tana French
#26. Spectacular sporting events are bread & circuses. The Superbowl, for instance, is anything but "super". It is a Petri dish under the lens of mediaocrity, where surveillance of the spectators is just as mind numbing as the incomprehensible homo-erotic beefcake ballet being enacted on the pitch - Author: Dean Cavanagh
Corvino Ballet quotes by Dean Cavanagh
#27. A genius is a talented person who does his homework. - Author: Thomas A. Edison
Corvino Ballet quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#28. They had extemporized a verse made up of two insults about matters over which the victim had no control: the color of her skin and speculations on the sleeping habits of an adult, widely fitting in its incoherence. That they themselves were black, or that their own father had similarly relaxed habits was irrelevant. It was their contempt for their own blackness that gave the first insult it's teeth. They seem to have taken all of their smoothly cultivated ignorance, their exquisitely learned self-hatred, their elaborately designed hopelessness and sucked it all up into a fiery cone of scorn that had burned for ages in the hollows of their minds - cooled - and spilled over lips of outrage, consuming whatever was in its path. They danced a macabre ballet around the victim, whom, for their own sake, they were prepared to sacrifice to the flaming pit. - Author: Toni Morrison
Corvino Ballet quotes by Toni Morrison
#29. I want to share the ballet world with everyone. - Author: Misty Copeland
Corvino Ballet quotes by Misty Copeland
#30. In 1998, Vanity Fair asked me to write a big piece for them on the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet. My life, to a great extent, had been spent at and with the New York City Ballet, and I decided to try it. It was very scary, writing about something I loved so much and had such strong opinions about. - Author: Robert Gottlieb
Corvino Ballet quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#31. Every teacher will tell you that you cannot dance classical technique with perfection, there is no such thing, there is no way. So you have to adapt the technique to your abilities or to your deficiencies. Learn to cheat! - Author: Jiri Kylian
