I'm removing the quote:

For the wealthy there is therapy; for the rest of us, there's just dancing.


It appears to be a personal addition by an individual and it barely shows up (in its entirety or in large chunks) when doing a search for the source. Apologies if incorrect.

I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known.

The Dance.
