The Role of the Dance Artist in Society

The artist should belong to his society, yet without feeling that he has to conform to it. He must see life fully, and then say what he feels about it. Then, although he belongs to his society, he changes it, presenting it with fresh feelings, fresh ideas. Art should be a reflection and a comment on contemporary life.
-- Anna Sokolow, "The Modern Dance: Seven Statements of Belief"
