Arrogance (which is just a twisted manifestation of deep insecurity) kills more dancers than lack of knowledge/technique/formal education.
I´m never tired of saying it: a big ego can never – ever – coexist with a great dancer.
Which path are you willing to follow: your ego (small) or your soul (infinite)? You cannot dance with both at the same time.
Wondering why this is so hard to grasp.
