|"Dancing is not conducive to a proper learning environment."|
|— The music teacher to Aang.|
When Avatar Aang, using the alias of Kuzon, attended the school, he was given the tsungi horn to play during music class. While playing, Aang simultaneously began dancing to the music, but this gesture of rhythm was not appreciated by the music teacher, who asked if the "hullabaloo going on in [Aang's] feet" was a nervous disorder and instructed him to refrain from dancing while playing the horn. Confused, Aang replied by saying that dancing was a way of expressing oneself. The teacher, moved by his dancing, told him that he may march in place if he must show his love for his nation. It was apparent that he believed in the strict rules that the Fire Nation laid out for its educational system, one of which was no dancing.
