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.
My dancers expect me to deliver because my choreography represents their livelihood.
This is the strange thing: Dancers don't age.
I find that dancers are only well trained in ballet these days.
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.
Usually I perform with dancers.
Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.
When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire.
Yes, bad or mediocre ballets can be useful to the dancers and temporarily fun for the audience, but in the long run, the lowering of standards can only erode the art form we all love.
The mystery of Christopher Wheeldon deepens. Yes, he's the most talented of the younger ballet choreographers - indeed, where's the competition? Yes, he's particularly good at nurturing dancers and identifying their essential qualities.
I don't go to these places where there are belly dancers and this and that.
I like to always remind my dancers about ways to avoid injury. One of the basic ways to avoid injury is to always make sure to stretch and warm up your body. This will loosen up your muscles, which will help to avoid common strain injuries such as shin splints and ankle strains.
I'm really grateful for my dancers' discipline.
There are a lot of artists that I love, and I think they're really talented, and they're good dancers as well. I've always wished that I could combine that.
