"Each decent Oriental dancer must express life, death, happiness, sorrow, love and anger, but above all she must have dignity." ~Tahia Karioka

"Egyptian dance is a very naked kind of art, in the sense that

on stage, we expose our deepest emotions through movement.
The height of a good Oriental dance performance is in the depths you can move your audience to on a visceral level. 
It's living poetry:

this moment is all there is and it's bound to make you feel something."
~ Iris
