Baryshnikov Wisdom

“When a dancer comes onstage, he is not just a blank slate that the choreographer has written on.  Behind him he has all the decisions he has made in his life…Each time, he has chosen, and in what he is onstage you see the result of these choices.  You are looking at the person he is, and the person who, at this point, he cannot help but be…Exceptional dancers, in my experience, are also exceptional people, people with an attitude toward life, a kind of quest, and an internal quality.  They know who they are, and they show this to you, willingly.” – Mikhail Baryshnikov
