    I'm sorry you live among such poor teachers.

    Oh A'isha and Sedoniaraqs! I really don't believe it's that bad. I would never think that all the teachers here wouldn't care about their audience or think that it's all about themselves, I know it's not like that. This is also not limited to bellydance. I've heard it before performances with the drama class, modern dance, music class, choir etc. I think it's one of those things you say to calm your students because they are really nervous.

    This way of thinking about the audience did something good for me and I just wanted to acknowledge that. It's extremely harsh to judge all the teachers around me just because something I said on this forum.

    Sorry for the off topic-post.

    I was trying to pick some music to dance to and found a couple of Oum Kalthoum instrumental pieces I liked...and I thought how would I feel if it was an English song and I thought it would be strange if the emotion of the dance did not match the emotion of the lyrics-even if the lyrics werent being sung...but I didn't really recall it being discussed so I was curious what the consensus was...Thanks...
