My favorite quote is:

And so as soon as I was choreographing other people besides myself, which was very early on, I was making up stuff that I wanted to watch, as opposed to what I wanted to feel like.

I wish that were every choreographer's MO.

Wonderful point. Very funny (and insightful) interview. This is probably my favorite part:

"Do older dancers bring something that younger dancers don’t?

I like working with grown-up dancers much better, because there’s somebody to talk to at the airport when you’re delayed."

haha! The man has no filter, and he's completely honest about how he views the world. Even though I disagree with him at times.

Here is my favorite quote (I've underlined below):

Do you miss performing?

I don’t, believe it or not. I don’t miss the roar of the crowd. I still get that when I take a bow, if I milk it right. I’m not regretful, but I’m envious sometimes.

But really, the entire article is quotable.
