P.A.R.T.S. is an international school for contemporary dance and choreography based in Brussels, Belgium. P.A.R.T.S. is an artistic project, inspired by the multifaceted artistic practice of its founder and director Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and other choreographers. P.A.R.T.S. provides a thorough education for dancers and choreographers to become independent and creative artists.

P.A.R.T.S. is a full-time curriculum with two independent programs: the bachelor training program (three years) and the master STUDIOS program (two years).

BA Training is a professional education for dancers and choreographers, offering the theoretical and practical fundamentals of contemporary dance and the typical P.A.R.T.S.-approach, which consists of a focus on physical conscience, the development of creative and compositional skills, a training in drama and music, and theoretical reflection. A cycle starts every three years, in 2022, then in 2025.

MA STUDIOS targets choreographers and dance-makers who want to develop their creative voice and practice, in a learning environment that is communal and collaborative. The program consists of self-directed research, movement research workshops, choreography masterclasses, theoretical seminars, dance classes, and projects fostering cross-cultural thinking and creation. The program finishes with a written thesis and end-of-studies creations with public presentations. The cycle starts every three years, in 2022, then in 2025.
