You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive. It is not for unsteady souls.” Merce Cunningham


I dance to obliterate duration.
I dance to dignify form as content.
I dance because you don’t have to carry your instrument.
I dance because I can’t wait to be asked.
I dance to forget why I dance.

Douglas Dunn
