George Balanchine

God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it - from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do.More George Balanchine [07/16/2009 12:07:00]

One is born to be a dancer. No teacher can work miracles, nor will years of training make a good dancer of an untalented pupil. One may be able to acquire a certain technical facility, but no one can ever 'acquire an exceptional talent.' I have never prided myself on having an unusually gifted pupil. A Pavlova is no one's pupil but God's.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

First comes the sweat. Then comes the beauty if you're very lucky and have said your prayers.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ballet dancing is arduous, strenuous activity. Students are engaged in physical training that rivals the training Olympic athletes undergo. At the same time, they strive for physical perfection not for the prowess alone but as a way of achieving the means necessary to express the pure nature of their art.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ballet is important and significant - yes. But first of all, it is a pleasure.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

In ballet a complicated story is impossible to tell ... we can't dance synonyms.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It's like the time capsule with everything in it. Or like the seed that when you plant it, becomes the enormous tree with leaves and fruit. Everybody was in that little seed, and so everything can open. The tree of dance is like that. It just takes a long, long time to blossom.More George Balanchine [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
