I wasn’t interested in going to the school dances. I wasn’t interested in going to the football games. What I wanted was to be in my room painting my walls and doing weird stuff. That’s what I wanted and I got to do what I wanted, so that, to me, is my high school experience.
In the ‘Doki Doki Morning’ video, there were lots of parts where we weren’t dancing. It was just, you know, our faces. But fans thought up their own movements and dances for those parts, and they made lots of outfits, too.
I have a beautiful, young wife who sings and dances, so there’s a lot of duetting going on at my house.

Every time I do a talk show or something, I’ll be like, ‘I’m doing ‘Chandelier,’ right?’ and they’re like, ‘No, you’re doing a skit and three dances.’ It’s different every time. I never really know what I’m doing until the day before.
There’s a scene in ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ where this guy dances with a giant doll while singing ‘Make ‘Em Laugh.’ I remember loving the pure physicality of it.

Dances have a second and third life. You feel they are never ready. They always have a chance for another life.

Indian cinema is entertaining, and what I love most about it is the songs and dances in the films.
Dancing in high heels is kind of tough. I learn the dances without the heels, and then we add them. We just practice, and I get used to it. My feet hurt really badly at the end of the shows, but it’s fun. While it’s happening it’s fun. I feel tall.
I am the ‘Cosmic Dancer’ who dances his way out of the womb and into the tomb on ‘Electric Warrior.’ I’m not frightened to get up there and groove about in front of six million people on TV because it doesn’t look cool. That’s the way I would do it at home.

The truest expression of a people is in its dances and its music. Bodies never lie.
I think some of my favorite Australian films were shot by people that are not Australian. And I think when Dean Semler did ‘Dances with Wolves,’ for instance, that’s a very different-looking Western than what you’ve seen much of before. It’s very rich, color-wise. But we’ve got our own very proud thing going on.
My genuine passion for dance was born watching Ballet Rambert perform Christopher Bruce’s harrowing ‘Ghost Dances.’

With each piece I’ve completed I have worked to make it intact, and each of them has been an equal high. It’s like children. A mother refuses to pick out one as a favorite, and I can’t do any better with the dances.
Well, we like to let down our hair and pep it up at the dances, but we keep it slower when we broadcast. We have to please everybody, and that softer music appeals to the larger amount of people. It’s like eating too much cake. You have to have your steak too.
Sex in a dance is in the eyes of the beholder. I never thought my dances sexy. I suppose that’s because I see myself with my face washed, and to me I look like a rabbit.
I’ve grown up with bhangra and Haryanvi folk dances.
Sure, I could give advice; I could, say, travel the world, listen to music. But all I can really say is do something you want to do and do it well. And if you want to be a choreographer, then you have to make dances.
The bosom can ache beneath diamond brooches; and many a blithe heart dances under coarse wool.
When I plug in my guitar and play it really loud, loud enough to deafen most people, that’s my shot of adrenaline, and there’s nothing like it. That’s what it’s always been for me – to be the flame the tribe dances around.
I guess after Dances With Wolves they probably tried some derivative westerns, and if they didn’t work, they said the western is dead and moved on to something else.
I loved being a student more than being in school. I was kind of the nerd type; I was more into my career and my studies than the dances and being popular.
There is something very cyclical about the way fashion designers work. They work and work and work, the collection is finally shown, and after those 15 minutes, they must start over from the beginning. This is not unlike the way I work creating new dances.
I love going to football games and going to homecoming dances and just doing normal things.
Among my classical dances, I loved my ‘Mrig Trishna’ dance. People should try that on stage. I don’t know why they don’t. It’s beautifully written.

‘Seven Sonatas,’ with its flowing series of meetings between men and women in an identifiable emotional world, is in the mould of Jerome Robbins’ glorious ‘Dances at a Gathering.’
Beyonce moves a lot. She’s astonishing, dances and sings at the same time. She is buff.

Dancing is part of me now! The Latin dances are where my passions are.
You get people talking about being worried about their art, and dances… their culture being wiped out or taken over, and yet these same people are taking advantage of their people to use them as cheap labour.
Comedy is not easy to begin with, but comedy that also dances with drama – it’s so hard.
Meryl Streep’s brilliant, just brilliant. I’ve been fortunate to do two movies with Meryl. And for an actor to go moment to moment like she does, there’s no one better. And she dances between moments. Each take is different because she’s riding instincts, she’s riding impulses. And she trusts that.
I love the way in which I make up dances. It’s a complicated way and the product is usually clear. Clear and simple. I don’t need everybody to know that there are all of these fabulous things going on. If you CAN see it, that’s wonderful.

I had a Jackson 5 wig that I would wear around, and I would do, like, the dances from the Jackson 5, and, you know, my mother thought that was hysterical. So of course, that seed got planted very early, the physicality of comedy.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
Deadpool exploded for the youth around 2010 with ‘Marvel vs. Capcom.’ He was the most popular character. He does kicks, then mocks you as he hits you and dances around you when you hit the ground.
