I copied this from DF years ago and thought we should have it here:

The four stages of dancing:
1. Beginning dancer: Knows nothing.
2. Intermediate dancer: Knows everything, but is too good to dance with beginners.
3. Hotshot dancer: Too good to dance with anyone.
4. Advanced dancer: Dances everything, especially with beginners.

Interesting - I found a great biography on him - he was mostly a folk dancer but knew ballroom:
http://www.phantomranch.net/folkdanc/teachers/crum_d.htm

In addition to the quote above (verified on this site) he coined a lot of dynamite terms:
Some of Dick's "Crumisms" are:

"Bloop-bloops"
"Cranch"
"Dance inside your shoes"
"Earlobes upright"
"Ethnic symmetry" to indicate the same footwork in the opposite direction
"Ethnographical vortex"
"Get your papers here"
"Ker-plop"
"Look less non-Serbian"
"Mixed pickles" (or "Kris Kringle" during the Christmas season)
"No shushing"
"Pantherine movement"
"Period. Paragraph."
"Plain vanilla" that morphed into "Plain yogurt" in later years
"Sore toe"
"Strike a Pan-Hellenic pose"
"...that lurk behind every step-hop in the syllabus of life."
"Your other left foot"
