Traditional music and dancing play a prominent role in the cultural life of the United Arab Emirates. It is common to see colourful displays of folkloric dancers at a wide variety of occasions, such as sporting events, weddings, and national festivals. The style of dancing most frequently seen is known as the Ayyala tradition. Rows of male dancers, accompanied by traditional instruments such as the drums or Tubool, recreate a battle using sticks as swords, while the dance movements themselves weave a story of the combat. The women, dressed in their attractive traditional costumes with their long black hair flowing gracefully with the music, perform the Na'ashat.

Traditional folklore groups receive great encouragement and assistance from the Ministry of Information and Culture and particularly from the UAE President, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan. Visitors to the Expo 2000 in Hannover have been entranced by performances of folkloric dancers and musicians at the immensely popular UAE Pavilion.
