I do not try to dance better than anyone else, I only try to dance better than myself.

— My jump is not high enough, my turns aren’t perfect, I can’t get my leg behind my ear…

— Please don’t do that. Sometimes there’s an obsession with technique that can kill your best impulses. But communicating with an art form means being vulnerable. Being imperfect. And most of the time this is much more interesting, trust me.
