If you choose to proudly display your fur, then the following may happen, depending on the environment in which you danced:. This logic may seem crazy to you, but it's really how some people think. The audience, event organizer, and restaurant owner will have no way of knowing what your grooming habits are if you cover them, and it's nobody's business what lies beneath your clothes. Is your desire to keep your armpit hair more important than doing this performance? If you are not willing to set aside some of your personal wants in order to provide a pleasing experience for your audience, then you are not emotionally ready to perform in public. I am preparing to do my first performance.

You have the right to choose whether to publicly exhibit armpit hair or not. If the audience will be primarily Middle Eastern people, you should either remove or cover the armpit hair. If you're dancing a solo that you personally organized without the help of your teacher or troupe leader, then you can make grooming choices that don't conform to their recommendations.
