  • Looking forward to the day when a young dancer/choreographer talks about this as being an inspiration to their life.

    Thank you Marguerite for passing the torch.  And thanks MoveTV for sharing these "inspirations."

  • Thank you Move TV and Marguerite for sharing this inspiring story.  To be driven by the passion of dance is anything but simple.  But it is simply beautiful.

  • Wow, thank you for sharing Marguerite.  How well I understood Agnus.  Started dancing very late in life,and I definitely didn't have the dancer's body, but thank God my passion for dance is greater then the reality of my short comings.  You said something so profound.... You said you stopped worrying about what you don't have but just to keep pushing forward.  It may seem crazy at my age and body style, but thank you, cause I'm just going to keep pushing forward.  I just love you!  You inspire me! 

  • Thank you Marguerite....what a lovely, moving, human story ... you have heart.  Thank you for sharing that so simply.
