Learning to choreograph is first of all a matter of having time, space, opportunities and freedom to experiment, and to look for a working method, content, dramaturgy and form. P.A.R.T.S. does not presuppose specific aesthetics, methodologies or definitions of authorship, but provides coaching and feedback by teachers and invited artists.
In the 1st year, all students create a solo, to be presented at the end of the year. Students organise themselves, feedback and coaching is provided through working groups, where students develop peer-to-peer support and feedback, guided by an experienced coach.
In the 2nd year, all students create a duet or trio, which is framed as a specific task: to develop a work relating to a specific musical composition, to be chosen from a predefined list. Students also collaborate with musicians from other schools who perform the music in the presentations.
In the 3rd year, students work in larger groups to create new work, guided by one or more from their peers or as a collective creation.
Individual personal work
In the 2nd and 3rd year, students can propose personal work projects instead of specific workshops, for research and/or creation in small or larger groups. Each group can benefit form the support of a mentor.
PERSONAL WORK OUTSIDE THE CURRICULUM
Students can also create their own work outside the curriculum, since the studios are available for them in the evenings, weekends and some holidays. These extra-curricular works are not supported by mentoring, but they can become part of informal showings and public presentations.
Doing an internship in a professional environment is possible in the first semester of the 3rd year. The students who are interested take the initiative to look for a temporary position in a company, as dancer or artistic assistant.
