Twyla Tharp, one of America’s greatest dance choreographers, shares her extensive experience in the creative realm in her book ‘The Creative Habit.’ 


“In order to be creative you have to know how to prepare to be creative.”


“I believe that we all have strands of creative code hard-wired into our imaginations.”


“Reading, conversation, environment, culture, heroes, mentors, nature—all are lottery tickets for creativity. Scratch away at them and you’ll find out how big a prize you’ve won.”


“When creativity has become your habit: when you’ve learned to manage time, resources, expectations, and the demands of others; when you understand the value and place of validation, continuity, and purity of purpose—then you’re on the way to an artist’s ultimate goal: the achievement of mastery.”
