Deborah Bull Quotes

Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words.
Deborah Bull
Understand, Words, Powerful

It’s not about weight, it’s about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.
Deborah Bull
Fitness, Body, Fat

As you get older, the physical abilities decrease, which is particularly frustrating because your brain gets so good! So as you are becoming less technically or physically able, younger dancers are emerging who need the space to perform.
Deborah Bull
Good, Able, Less

Young dancers are training at a very vulnerable time in their lives, through adolescence, and while they are trying to work out who they are as people, never mind as a dancer. So train the whole person, not just the dancer.
Deborah Bull
Time, Work, Mind

It’s not magic! It’s physics. The speed of the turn is what keeps you upright. It’s like a spinning top.
Deborah Bull
Turn, Top, Magic

Because muscle is heavier than fat, dancers weigh more than you might think, but they are usually very lean.
Deborah Bull
Might, Fat, Dancers

Deborah Bull
Career, Tough, Dancing

Dancing’s not always stressful, but I always make sure that I’m prepared as I can be, both physically, mentally, and practically.
Deborah Bull
Both, Sure, Dancing

I have lots of interests, but it’s true that dancing is a very full-time job.
Deborah Bull
True, Job, Dancing

Deborah Bull
Against, Training, Example

At the moment I’m enjoying a new challenge at the Royal Opera House, but I’m also keen to pursue my interest in television and particularly in science.
Deborah Bull
Science, Moment, House

I always recommend a sensible diet, including lots of carbohydrates and avoiding too much fat. Dancers don’t need different fuel from other people – they just need more of it because they use more energy.
Deborah Bull
Diet, Energy, Use

I get to the theatre in plenty of time; I prepare my shoes in advance; I eat and drink the right things at the right time. The rest you have to leave to luck!
Deborah Bull
Time, Leave, Rest

I think it’s useful to experience other types of dance and other cultures, and the life of a classical dancer these days is certainly not all tutus! So experience of other dance forms is a good idea.
Deborah Bull
Life, Good, Experience

I’ve always believed that the facts about dancing are more interesting than the myths, and this was a great chance for me to explore how the human body does such incredible things.
Deborah Bull
Great, Body, Chance

It’s another myth that dancing distorts or destroys your feet. If you have the right shaped foot to start and a good, strong technique, your feet should be fine.
Deborah Bull
Good, Another, Strong

People often argue about this. Obviously one of the skills in performance is acting, and you can’t expect every Romeo to really be in love with their Juliet!
Deborah Bull
Love, Often, Acting
