I have been guilty of watching Westerns without acknowledging that Native Americans have gone through the same madness as African Americans. Isn't it extraordinary that sometimes the most offended have not seen others being offended?
Dancing Spirit, ch. 3 (1993)
You don't enter a dance studio and say "I can't do that." If you do, then why are you in the studio in the first place?Judith Jamison
Dance is bigger than the physical body. When you extend your arm, it doesn't stop at the end of your fingers, because you're dancing bigger than that; you're dancing spirit.Judith Jamison
I've always felt that complement of opposites: body and soul, solitude and companionship, and in the dance studio, contraction and release, rise and fall.Judith Jamison
People come to see beauty, and I dance to give it to them.Judith Jamison
