en nl fr

P.A.R.T.S. SummerSchool aims at creating an encounter between teachers, choreographers and dancers, exchanging knowledge and experience over the course of five weeks. We offer technical classes (contemporary technique and ballet), yoga, Rosas repertoire and project workshops.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The programme is open for all dancers from beginners to advanced who are minimum 16 years of age. We have the main 5-week schedule which includes 4 different programmes, each one of them specifically constructed for the different levels of dancers. Next to the main schedule we have added two advanced weekend programmes for professional dancers. If it seems after the first day that the level of the class/workshop is not adequate for the participant, the teacher can in consultation with the coordinator change him/her to another level. This rule does not apply for the weekend programmes. Find below some information on the essentials of each programme. Please do not hesitate to contact us (summerschool@parts.be) with questions regarding the best suited programme for you.

PROGRAMMES

The BEGINNERS PROGRAMME (blue) is designed to give anyone who is interested, or who has never danced before, an introduction to contemporary dance. The participant will have a yoga class, contemporary technique class and a project workshop.

The ELEMENTARY PROGRAMME (yellow) is for dance enthusiasts who have once in a while taken a dance class or workshop but do not do so on a regular basis. The programme will give the participant time to encounter the basic requirements of contemporary dance. It includes a yoga class, contemporary technique class and Rosas repertoire or a project workshop.

The PRE-INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMME (green) is here for dancers who have already had a more in-depth encounter with contemporary dance, meaning that it is suited for those who follow classes on a regular basis. This programme is aimed at dancers who dance between 3 and 6 hours/week. The programme includes a yoga class, contemporary technique class and Rosas repertoire or a project workshop.

The INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMME (pink) is designed for dancers who dance daily or more than 7 hours/week. The programme includes a yoga class, contemporary technique class and Rosas repertoire or a project workshop.

The ADVANCED WEEKEND PROGRAMME (grey) is only open for professional dancers and dancers who have been in a full time programme (BA/MA) of an international school/institution of higher dance education for a minimum of two years. We organize two intensive weekends in which the focus is on Rosas repertoire.
