Being crazy about dance, we love to read dance quotes.

We have short dance quotes, funny dance quotes, famous quotes about dancing, thoughtful and inspirational quotes.

There are so many, you're sure to find one to lift you up, motivate you to push harder, to make you laugh or cry, to inspire you and to just explain why you feel the way you do about dancing! You're not alone!

Use these to decorate your dance books or dance bag. Write them on posters and decorate your room. Change them and create a new one each week. Enjoy!
