“The ultimate aim of all dance
must be to move the whole being together in harmony.
 Therefore, having made the body sensitive,
let it be swept by rhythm: the rhythm of music,
by moving to a good swinging simple tune;
the rhythm of nature,
 by floating in the sea,
and surrendering to the will of the waves;
or by lying on the branches of a tree in the wind
to feel its effortless swaying.
In this way the outer and the inner being will be harmonized.”

“The ultimate aim of all dance

must be to move the whole being together in harmony.

 Therefore, having made the body sensitive,

let it be swept by rhythm: the rhythm of music,

by moving to a good swinging simple tune;

the rhythm of nature,

 by floating in the sea,

and surrendering to the will of the waves;

or by lying on the branches of a tree in the wind

to feel its effortless swaying.

In this way the outer and the inner being will be harmonized.”
