Dancer from Gala Flamenco, Sadler’s Wells Flamenco Festival and quote from T S Eliot, (c) Carole Edrich 2015

This week’s inspirational dance quote by T.S. Eliot is; “So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing”. It’s from East Coker. One of the Four Quartets it is considered to be one of the greatest ever works of mystical poetry.

The image is from the 2015 Sadler’s Wells Flamenco Festival’s Gala Flamenco. The 2016 Festival will be held in a couple of months, by now the line-up and behind-the-scenes production details will all have been agreed and soon we’ll be hearing which performances do – and do not – have photocalls.

If you like this quote and my blog please consider supporting me by buying my recent book ‘The Joy of Dance’. It includes many other inspirational quotes about and by dancers along with fascinating facts and captivating stories about as many different types of dances and dancers as I could cram in. It contains no photos, but some lovely illustrations.
