  • Oh, 'tis jesting, dancing, drinking Spins the heavy world around.

  • To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.

  • Toe dancing is a dandy attention getter, second only to screaming.

  • Dancing is such a despised and dishonored trade that if you tell a doctor or a laywer you do choreography he'll look at you as if you were a hummingbird. Dancers don't get invited to visit people. It is assumed a boy dancer will run off with the spoons and a girl with the head of the house.
