"Ballet is pure and demands that you serve something larger than yourself, whether it be beauty or art, or a combination of both.
 It requires discipline, taking care of yourself, taking care of your own body first. 
Then it allows you to give of that beauty, the beauty that you acquire by sculpting your own body all your life."


- PETER MARTINS, NYC Ballet Workout

"What's so wonderful about ballet is that it's mind-driven physicality. It's almost a Greek ideal of body, mind, and form."

"Ballet is the repetitive training of the body for the purpose of executing steps in traditional fashion. It is tied to and bound by the past. It is a disciplined beauty consciously preserved in the image of the old days in societies that were class-conscious and appreciative of elitist physical expertise."

"I think most dancers would agree that the art of ballet chooses the dancer, not the other way around."
