 "For years I was in ballet schools. I never went with the idea of becoming a professional. At a certain point I couldn’t really go to a regular school because I didn’t know anything, and ballet school was the only school my parents could keep me in. I was perfectly happy in a ballet class on a barre. I think that it’s the only way to bring up a girl, you see, because it gives her a feeling, a rhythm. Through dancing you interpret the music, and you feel the wonderful, natural things of the earth. It’s the discipline, doing everything absolutely perfectly, meeting the standards because, by God, with a ballet master like Fokine, if you didn’t you were in trouble."  Diana Vreeland - Particular Passions: Talks With Women Who Shaped Our Times, by Lynn Gilbert
