The show will bring together the class of Graciete Jesuíno (teacher and choreographer of Oriental Dance at Ideias do Levante) and some special guests. According to the organization, this show, designed by Gabriela Sharifa, includes a large component of amateurism, since the dancers on stage will be mostly amateurs and / or newcomers in this art. However, the organization stresses that the public will be surprised and pleased with the performance of the dancers. Roberto Estorninho, president of Ideias do Levante, welcomes all the work that has been developed not only by Graciete Jesuíno, but also by all the dancers and other members involved in the production of this show.
