George Balanchine Quote: “Why are you stingy with yourselves? Why are you holding back? What are you saving for – for another time? There are no other times. There is only now. Right now.”
George Balanchine Quote: “First comes the sweat. Then comes the beauty if you’re very lucky and have said your prayers.”
George Balanchine Quote: “I don’t want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance.”
George Balanchine Quote: “The mirror is not you. The mirror is you looking at yourself.”
George Balanchine Quote: “God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do...”

George Balanchine Quote: “Choreography is simpler than you think. Just go and do, and don’t think so much about it. Just make something interesting.”
George Balanchine Quote: “I don’t have a past. I have a continuous present. The past is part of the present, just as the future is. We exist in time.”

George Balanchine Quote: “It’s like the time capsule with everything in it. Or like the seed that when you plant it, becomes the enormous tree with leaves and fruit.

George Balanchine Quote: “Most ballet teachers in the United States are terrible. If they were in medicine, everyone would be poisoned.”

George Balanchine Quote: “I can always invent movement, and sometimes it can be fitted into the right place, but that is not choreography. It is the music that dictates the whole shape of the work. I do not believe in the permanence of anything in ballet save the purely classical.”
George Balanchine Quote: “Put a man and a girl on stage and there is already a story; a man and two girls, there’s already a plot.”
George Balanchine Quote: “I have no literary approach – except to literature.”
George Balanchine Quote: “The pointes for girls, I always say, have to be like an elephant’s trunk; strong and yet flexible and soft.”
George Balanchine Quote: “I cannot move, I cannot even want to move, unless I hear the music first.”
