Dance is the only art of which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made.
I believe that dance communicates man's deepest, highest and most truly spiritual thoughts and emotions far better than words, spoken or written.
I wanted to see if the American man in plain brown pants and a bare torso could speak profound things.
