I am always a proponent of using dance to help educate others and bring new perspective to a topic with many misconceptions, but what I find particularly creative about Sakett's program is that she mixes Islam culture with hip hop culture in a way that uniquely and effectively represents Muslim Americans. Hagendoom writes that dance is a cultural phenomenon that everyone from every culture identifies with, and Sakett's use of hip hop really triggers interest in the brains of her audience. She primes her audience with the lecture, so that they have a renewed zest and engagement with her movement. Hip hop is in general very dynamic and eye catching movement. What Sakett adds to hip hop is an emotion or metaphorical meaning that isn't normally present in the movement unless paired with intense hip hop music.
