Probably the most famoous of all the contemporary dance schools,PARTS has played a significant role in the developement of contemporary dance across Europe. The school was founded by Anne de Keersmaeker in 1995 and since has been the leading conservatory for dance. The school is highly selective, only allowing 30 students into the first cycle and even less for the second cycle. PARTS also helped establish Brussels as the dance capital of Europe, with many of its alumni having successful performance/choreographic careers. This is an intensive training program where even diets are monitored, so this school is only truly for the dance diehards.
