Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire. Dancing is a wonderful training for girls, it's the first way you learn to guess what a man is going to do before he does it. Through dancing many maidens have been unmaidened, whereby I may say it is the storehouse and nursery of bastardy. Almost nobody dances sober, unless they are insane. And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. They who love dancing too much seem to have more brains in their feet than in their head. Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room. Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order. Dancing is the poetry of the foot. Poetry is to prose as dancing is to walking. Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays. Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels. The real American type can never be a ballet dancer. The legs are too long, the body too supple and the spirit too free for this school of affected grace and toe walking. Somebody just gave me a shower radio. Thanks a lot. Do you really want music in the shower? I guess there's no better place to dance than a slick surface next to a glass door.
