  • The only critic is a full house.
  • I don't care if Margot is a Dame of the British Empire or older than myself. For me she represents eternal youth; there is an absolute musical quality in her beautiful body and phrasing. Because we are sincere and gifted, an intense abstract love is born between us every time we dance together.
  • Technique is what you fall back on when you run out of inspiration.
  • A pas de deux is a dialogue of love. How can there be conversation if one partner is dumb?
  • "Until Rudi came along, all a man had to do to get into the Royal Ballet was, more or less, turn up and show willing. Nureyev completely changed the pace. He engaged with female dancers, manhandled them. It was exciting, virile." --A fellow danseur at the Royal Ballet of London
