“l’enfant s’amuse, saute, danse et se jette dans tout ce que le mouvement lui inspire.

La grande danseuse après 10 ans d’efforts journaliers, exécute des pas et des figures extraordinaires par leur beauté et leur exécution parfaite.

La vraie danseuse après 10 ans et plus d’efforts journaliers, oublie sa technique (que son corps pourtant n’oublie pas) et s’amuse, saute, danse, et se jette dans tout ce que le mouvement lui inspire, tout comme l’enfant.”

 

“the child has fun, jumps, dances and throws himself into whatever movement inspires him.
The great dancer after 10 years of daily efforts, performs steps and figures extraordinary by their beauty and their perfect execution.
The real dancer after 10 years and more of daily efforts, forgets her technique (which her body does not forget) and has fun, jumps, dances, and throws herself into whatever movement inspires her, just like the ‘child.”
