"Dancing is a beautiful way to say thank you to your body and join the human race."
- Twyla Tharp

"I see dance as a visual, tactile, and sensual language, structured with a specific vocabulary and idiom, within an organic bind of space/time principles and, most importantly, related to the dynamics of energy and flow with a capacity to recharge human beings."
- Chandralekha

"It's not easy in the digital era to get a full house for live shows, to keep the curtains up. Performers have to think of ways to make their art more appealing to the real world."

"Dance choreography is like composing music. Any artist that exactly knows what is going to happen on the stage is not creating much."

"The coronavirus has interrupted and upended the performing arts, but it's also made something clear about dance: It isn't beholden to a proscenium stage. Its visibility, through TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and, yes, even people on the street, has been undeniable, even with theaters shut down. Dancers are still performing and choreographers are still creating, be it for a premiere on video, a reinvention of a classic or a combination of the two. While there's no denying that this is an incredibly difficult time for dance and dance artists, it's also been a privilege to witness such imagination and resilience."
