Martha Graham

American dancer, teacher and choreographer
Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.More Martha Graham quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance.More Martha Graham quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of man--the landscape of his soul. I hope that every dance I do reveals something of myself or some wonderful thing a human can be.More Martha Graham quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A dancer, more than any other human being, dies two deaths: the first, the physical when the powerfully trained body will no longer respond as you would wish. After all, I choreographed for myself. I never choreographed what I could not do. I changed steps in Medea and other ballets to accommodate the change. But I knew. And it haunted me. I only wanted to dance.More Martha Graham quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Learn by practice.More Martha Graham quotes [08/15/2007 12:08:00]
