I read somewhere that each one of us follows our own life path to reach the same destination i.e. death. During our journey on this earth, each one of us finds our own means to connect with our soul, our God. Some of us pray, some of us meditate, some of us go to the mountains and become recluses and then there are others who dance.
Dancing, and for that matter any other art form, be it painting or singing, is a means for an artist to connect with his soul, his God, while on his journey of life. Many dancers and non-dancers have recognized and experienced this connection between dance and life, thus inspiring them to come up with some heart-felt dance quotes.
Given below is a list of some of these famous quotes and sayings, for you to enjoy and learn something about life.
