East European Performing Arts Platform (EEPAP) supports the
development of contemporary performing arts (dance and theatre)
in 18 countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
Auditions for the Training cycle at P.A.R.T.S. School for Contemporary Dance
P.A.R.T.S. is a school for contemporary dance. It provides a thorough technical training to dancers and choreographers and helps them develop into independent and creative artists. But dance is not an isolated art form; it is involved in a constant dialogue with the other performing arts – music and theatre.
The curriculum of PARTS is three years long. The school takes new students only every three years.
A new Training program will start in September 2016 and will last until June 2019.
The auditions process has two phases: a one day pre-selection in 21 different cities and a six day final audition in Brussels.
Pre-selections dates: between January and April 2016:
