Ballet Quotations

I have always loved fashion because it's a great way to express your mood. And I'm definitely a shoe lover. The right pair of shoes can change the feel of an outfit, and even change how a woman feels about herself. A woman can wear confidence on her feet with a high stiletto, or slip into weekend comfort with a soft ballet flat.
Fergie

When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire.
Angelina Jolie

Ballet is good, because it makes you stand up tall.
Carine Roitfeld

In ballet a complicated story is impossible to tell... we can't dance synonyms.
George Balanchine

I had seen the ballet of 'Swan Lake' as a child but it was as an adult, when I saw a production featuring Erik Bruhn, that I first noticed how significant a part the ever-present threat of violence played. This juxtaposition of great beauty and grace with a backdrop of pure evil stayed with me for years.
Walter Dean Myers
