Congratulations from the Cotillion Dance Club to the University of Minnesota competitive dance team for your impressive performance at Collegiate Nationals in Ohio. In the words of dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham: “You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.” We admire all the time, effort, and work it takes to dance at a competitive level, and to be the best that you can be.
