Life doesn’t hold tryouts.
Maureen, good elevation, good jumps, but if will fly more if its from the heart.
Maureen, you make it look like work. I need to see the movement, not the effort behind it.
Maureen: Erik got injured today. And do you know the first thing I thought when I saw him go down?
Maureen: I wish that was me. So that made me think, you know, ’cause that’s not a normal reaction. How much of what you liked about me was because I was a ballet dancer, and how much because I was me?
Mom, you didn’t have the feet; I didn’t have the heart.
Mrs Sawyer: Do you know how many they take?
Nervous Mother: Usually no more than twelve.
Mr Sawyer: 12?… From this class?
Nervous Mother: From the whole planet.

My names Eric Jones. Eric O’ Jones is my stage name. After my idol… Oprah!

this is jody, eva, i’m eric and you’re cute.
This is only the best thing that has ever happened to me, you can pretend to be happy.
Wait. For 10 years all I’ve wanted was to be one of American Ballet Company’s perfect ballarinas. I wanted to be you Juliet. But I’m not you, and I’m not perfect, I’m just me. Bad feet and all and I’m starting to think I like that even better. No, please don’t. Because if you’re not going to offer me a place in the company then I don’t want to hear it. And if you are, I might not have the strength to say no. And then I’d be spending my best dancing years in the back of a corps, waving a rose back and forth. And I’m better than that. So, thank you Jonathan for turning me into the best dancer I can be. I appriciate it more than I can say, really. Because the best dancer I can be is a principle in Cooper Nielsen’s new company.
Well, it looks like this time I got the girl.
What about what i want?

What? You went to a special bitch acadamy or something?
Whatever you feel just dance it.
Whatever You feel, Just dance it!!
Whatever you feel, just dance it.

Yesterday I was stage right, today I’m stage left, I wonder what I’ll be tomorrow.
You didn’t get all done up like that to talk about ballet. Come on.
You didn’t have the feet. I didn’t have the heart.
You don’t like him very much do you? I don’t blame you… he’s impossible. Headstrong, egoistical, unforgiving… arrogant is all help. The thing is you’ll be hard pressed to find any choreographer or company director who isn’t like that. The unwise dancers blame them. He didn’t like me… she was unfair… I should have had that part. The smart ones know where to look… when things get rough. It isn’t there. (Walks over the the barre) It’s HERE. No matter what happened in class, performance, last week, 5 minutes ago… if you come back here… you’ll be home.
you shouldn’t be eating donuts, they’re bad for you! (lights her cigarette)
You’re a great dancer and a wonderful Choreographer, but as a boyfriend, well you kinda suck
You’re not here by mistake. Someone at your audition watched you dance and saw something special. All you’ve gotta do is figure out how to find that again.
