I've tapdanced since I was 11 years old. I always wanted to be a tapdancer, and that's all I ever wanted to be.
The comedian sticks as religiously to her theme as a dancer sticks to a diet.
I look for dancers who have all the technique in the world. But they must be dancers who are open-minded, who are willing to forget that they know anything. They also have to be gorgeous; they must have a clear image of themselves and strong personalities.
Modern dancers should be doing things no one else is doing, and it should come from the gut.
A dancer's life is all about repetition.
My dancers expect me to deliver because my choreography represents their livelihood.
This is the strange thing: Dancers don't age.
If I didn't believe in myself as a dancer, I wouldn't choreograph.
Who a dancer is physically feeds into character for me. Always has.
I find that dancers are only well trained in ballet these days.
I'm obviously always interested in the dancer who's an athlete and vice versa. I expect dancers to be in condition like an athlete is and to challenge themselves in the same way, to the same physical degree.
I would love to do a live show with dancers and fashion and scenic elements - definitely bring my love of the theater to a concert-style performance.
The discipline that ballet requires is obsessive. And only the ones who dedicate their whole lives are able to make it. Your toenails fall off and you peel them away and then you're asked to dance again and keep smiling. I wanted to become a professional ballet dancer.
I was a dancer first, which made me realize how much I loved performing.
My wife is the dancer, but I certainly know how to sing.
