A sentimental journey is not good in the theatre unless you can take your audience with you (after all, they have paid for their seats), and to watch a dancer who is enjoying herself in her own way, without reference to theatrical interpretation, is like watching a sleeper who has a smile on her face, and wondering what she is dreaming about. — Kay Ambrose, The Ballet-Student’s Primer
