„Dancing appears glamorous, easy, delightful. But the path to paradise of the achievement is not easier than any other.“

I Am A Dancer (1952)
Kontext: Dancing appears glamorous, easy, delightful. But the path to paradise of the achievement is not easier than any other. There is fatigue so great that the body cries, even in its sleep. There are times of complete frustration, there are daily small deaths. Then I need all the comfort that practice has stored in my memory, a tenacity of faith.
