DEVELOPMENT AND MOTIVATION
Portal do Egito is a studio specializing in Belly Dance, but it offers fitness classes and other dance styles such as Tribal Belly Dance, and Bollywood among others. Classes are created focusing on the needs of each student, and mainly on the identification of the strengths and abilities that should and are motivated. Each semester instructors work on the technical development of each student and the results are published on their individual transcripts. This way, students have control over their performance and guidance for improvements to be addressed in following classes. At the end of each semester, students will participate in presentations and meetings where their progress will be evaluated by their own peers.
“I am what I am because we are”. This is the philosophy that guides Débora’s life. The feeling of collectivity and involvement marks her evolution and success. Since 2008, Débora produces and participates in Portal Do Egito’s annual show along with her students and invited guests. This show is the culmination of her students’ hard work and a testimonial of Débora’s ultimate goal: Students who understand that dancing is not just a physical activity but also about mindfulness and personal well-being.
