I think the best dancers are actresses, you have to do more than move correctly you have to portray the right character. I was watching So You Think You Can Dance (Season 8) and one of the judges says how the dancer showed her character perfectly by just the way she was standing, before she even danced a step. That’s a performer.
I LOVE this performance below, awesome technique but it’s her acting and attitude that makes her brilliant. 🙂
It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer. -Shanna LaFleur
The dance is the mother of the arts. Music and poetry exist in time; painting and architecture in space. But the dance lives at once in time and space. -Curt Sachs
