Descobertas - Parte II
"A dance is about who you'll dance with. Who will ask you? Who will say yes, if you ask? Who you'll be forced to say yes to. A dance is about its enormous potential for joy or disaster.
You remove all that - you put a band at an event where husbands just dance with their wives - and the only part of the dance you've got is the dancing."
"Don't you like to dance?" Sylvia asked.
"Only as an extreme sport," Allegra answered, "With the terror removed not so much."
