I take in the music and convert it into movement. If I am not talented enough for music to create dance in me, then I cannot be a truely good dancer......every dance has its own tempo..... then if I dance it too fast, it's not any better than if I dance it too slow....” Article by Abkarovits Endre (First published in „Nyelvünk és Kultúránk” 2004/1.)
