The place to find is within yourself. … The athlete who is in top form has a quite place within himself, and it’s around this, somehow, that his action occurs. If he’s all out there in the action field, he will not be performing properly. … this is true for dance as well. There’s a center of quietness within, which has to be known and held. If you lose that center, you are in tension and begin to fall apart. 1
