“Quite often narrow-minded people say that dancing is sacrilege. They think that God gave us music – not just the music we make with our voices and instruments, but the music that underpins all life – and then forbade us to listen to it. Do they not see that all nature sings? Everything in this universe moves in rhythm - the beat of the heart or the wings of birds, the wind on stormy nights, the blacksmith at his anvil or what an unborn baby hears in its mother's womb - everything participates , passionately, spontaneously, to a magnificent melody. The dance of the whirling dervishes is a link in this perpetual chain. Like the drop of water that carries within itself the entire ocean, our dance both reflects and veils the secrets of the cosmos”.
