Deborah Bull QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A good dancer is an educated one, so don't abandon school.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
As you get older, the physical abilities decrease, which is particularly frustrating because your brain gets so good! So as you are becoming less technically or physically able, younger dancers are emerging who need the space to perform.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
At the moment I'm enjoying a new challenge at the Royal Opera House, but I'm also keen to pursue my interest in television and particularly in science.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Because muscle is heavier than fat, dancers weigh more than you might think, but they are usually very lean.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
But you do have to start young as a dancer if you're going to achieve the physical skills necessary.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Dancing is a tough career, but I'm glad I spent it at the Royal Ballet.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Dancing's not always stressful, but I always make sure that I'm prepared as I can be, both physically, mentally, and practically.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
For Bill Shannon it's not a novelty, it's a necessity. Obviously the artistry depends on what you do with the crutches. If you have a message to get across, then it can be considered art.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I always found it a good idea to plaster my toes in advance. Better to avoid skinned toes than to deal with them afterwards.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I always found it helped if my partner and I had similar approaches and attitudes to our work, but we didn't need to be in love!
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I always recommend a sensible diet, including lots of carbohydrates and avoiding too much fat. Dancers don't need different fuel from other people - they just need more of it because they use more energy.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I do take class because I still dance, and yes, I do slip into class with the Royal Ballet from time to time.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I enjoy the freedom of modern dance as well as the constraints of classical dance.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I get to the theatre in plenty of time; I prepare my shoes in advance; I eat and drink the right things at the right time. The rest you have to leave to luck!
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I have lots of interests, but it's true that dancing is a very full-time job.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I think it's useful to experience other types of dance and other cultures, and the life of a classical dancer these days is certainly not all tutus! So experience of other dance forms is a good idea.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I think the shape of our bodies has as much to do with the shape of our parents as it does with training.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
I've always believed that the facts about dancing are more interesting than the myths, and this was a great chance for me to explore how the human body does such incredible things.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
It's another myth that dancing distorts or destroys your feet. If you have the right shaped foot to start and a good, strong technique, your feet should be fine.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
It's not about weight, it's about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
It's not magic! It's physics. The speed of the turn is what keeps you upright. It's like a spinning top.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
My feet are pretty normal, but they are probably much stronger than most people's feet, and some of the tendons are exceptionally strong.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Obviously if you use a muscle to a great extent, it will strengthen, but it's unlikely it will increase in bulk.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
People often argue about this. Obviously one of the skills in performance is acting, and you can't expect every Romeo to really be in love with their Juliet!
Quotation of Deborah Bull
So if the dance is five minutes long, make yourself run for perhaps eight minutes. That way, you over-train and the dance will seem easier.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Some of the muscle tone will decrease and flexibility will also decrease. It's true what they say: if you don't use it, you lose it.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
You increase muscle bulk by training against resistance. For example, weights. And in ballet, this isn't the case.
Quotation of Deborah Bull
Young dancers are training at a very vulnerable time in their lives, through adolescence, and while they are trying to work out who they are as people, never mind as a dancer. So train the whole person, not just the dancer.
