I love dance because it makes me feel more alive. I love dance because it makes me fall in love with the world. I love dance because it continuously disappears. I love dance because humans are fragile and life is short and we have these amazing things called bodies. I love dance because our bodies are smarter than our brains. I love dance because it's honest. I love dance because you can invent and lie and tell stories and make believe. I love dance because it's the only thing that makes life make sense to me. I love dance because of those rare exquisite moments when the movement feels as fine as it does in my dreams.- Caitlin Trainor
