Borst & Loh:
“The dancing of the foot is the dance of the soul. The soul is a dancing soul, and we dance our love life into existence as well as our life into existence.” (p. 11)
“Moral dance in the modern age is not one thing: it is the human self-assertion and self-discipline by which we express ourselves in society to a greater or lesser degree.” (p. 4)
“Our modern dance is an embodiment of our individual psychology—it is our conscious self-discipline to dance.” (p. 11)
“There are no ‘one size fits all’ forms of social dance, as no form fits all people. In social dancing it is true that the individual who goes out dancing is an outsider, but in all other spheres it is true that the individual who goes out dancing has a sense of belonging to a larger community of like-minded people, and has some control of the process by which he does come within close contact with other people.” (p. 6)
