When you're headlining, people are paying to come see you specifically. It's a different kind of pressure, because you've got to deliver. You've got to give these people what they paid for.

Dancers work and they work and they work, and they master their skills so far that improvisation just comes flowing out of them.

The human race is a herd.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
