Dia Internacional da Dança
«Dance is the movement of the universe concentrated in an individual.»
Pietro Longhi, The Dancing Lesson
«There is also another form in which what may be called figurative art still holds its place in the popular mind — I mean on the stage, and in the region of spectacular ballet and pantomime. The ballet has a very ancient origin, no doubt, and it is of course entirely figurative, all feeling being expressed by action alone, without the help of words. It is the drama of the body.»
Walter Crane, The Claims of Decorative Art, London, Lawrence and Bullen, 1892, p. 22.
