Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (PARTS)

The Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (PARTS) is an international school for contemporary dance and choreography based in Brussels, Belgium. PARTS is an artistic project, inspired by the multifaceted artistic practice of its founder and director Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and other choreographers. PARTS provides a thorough education for dancers and choreographers, to become independent and creative artists.

PARTS is a full-time curriculum with two independent programmes: Training (three years) and Studios (two years).

Training is a professional education for dancers and choreographers, offering the theoretical and practical fundamentals of contemporary dance and the typical PARTS-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 re-starts only every three years, the next time in 2019.
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 programme consists of self-directed research, movement research workshops, choreography masterclasses, theoretical seminars, dance classes and projects fostering cross-cultural thinking and creation. The programme finishes with a written thesis and end-of-studies creations with public presentations. The Studios cycle starts every three years, for the first time in 2019.
