Many students approach Oriental dance to be in touch with Arab culture (either because they are Arabs, of Arab descent, or Arab students), without the broad knowledge of the teacher in this field, some students probably observe a gap in the teaching. Many folklores such as Melaya or Baladi dance are absolutely linked to a cultural context, which is essential to know before teaching.
