Famous quotes containing the word dances:

    We have dancing ... from soon after sundown until a few minutes after nine o’clock.... Occasionally the boys who play the female partners in the dances exercise their ingenuity in dressing to look as girlish as possible. In the absence of lady duds they use leaves, and the leaf-clad beauties often look very pretty and always odd enough.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Now we sing, and do tiny dances on the kitchen floor.
    Our whole body is like a harbor at dawn;
    We know that our master has left us for the day.
    Robert Bly (b. 1926)

    I tell you the dances we had were really enough,
    your hands on my breast and all that sort of stuff.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
