Twyla Tharp Quote: “No one is born with skill. It is developed through exercise, through repetition, through a blend of learning and reflection that’s both painstaking and rewarding. And it takes time.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “I began to discriminate between fear and excitement. The two, though very close, are completely different. Fear is negative excitement, choking your imagination. Real excitement produces an energy that overcomes apprehension and makes you want to close in on your goal.”

Twyla Tharp Quote: “Dancing is like bank robbery, it takes split-second timing.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “You only need one good reason to commit to an idea, not four hundred. But if you have four hundred reasons to say yes and one reason to say no, the answer is probably no.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “Without the little ideas, there are no big ideas.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “The first steps of a creative act are like groping in the dark: random and chaotic, feverish and fearful, a lot of busy-ness with no apparent or definable end in sight.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “The only thing I fear more than change is no change. The business of being static makes me nuts.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “You don’t get into the mood to create – it’s discipline.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “Optimism with some experience behind it is much more energizing than plain old experience with a certain degree of cynicism.”

Twyla Tharp Quote: “Alone is a fact, a condition where no one else is around. Lonely is how you feel about that.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “Failing, and learning from it, is necessary. Unil you’ve done it, you’re missing an important piece of your creative arsenal.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “In the future, I will make certain that I commit to projects so there’s enough breathing space for me to have an emotional life.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “If you’re speaking of love, you really must include the element of uncertainty – and perhaps it’s best approached as the art of constant maintenance.”

Twyla Tharp Quote: “I am magnetically drawn to images, whether they’re paintings, photographs, film, or video. They are all lodestones of inspiration to me.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “Everyone has a talent. It’s simply a question of good discipline, of the good fortune to have an education that meshes with that talent, and a lot of luck.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “Just when you arrive at the apex of your skills, it’s time to retire. But as it turned out, I decided that since it was the thing that I felt I did best, I owed it to all that be to pursue it.”
Twyla Tharp Quote: “In dreams, anything can be anything, and everybody can do. We can fly, we can turn upside down, we can transform into anything.”

Twyla Tharp Quote: “The content and thematic materials of dance is, of itself, like boxing. You play tennis and baseball. But boxing is not a sport you play: you stand up and do it.”
