SUMMERSCHOOL 2017, July 10 – August 11

On July 10 the eighth edition of Summerschool will start, with a new concept. During a program of five weeks, you will be able to participate in

-       5 days-clusters of 3 classes: Yoga, contemporary and workshop;

-       5 days-workshops: intensively mentored mini-creations;

-       Classes à la carte.

The different levels (beginners, Intermediate, advanced) will be maintained in this new concept. The program will be announced in February. Registration will be possible from the first of March 2017.



PARTS and Rosas make their  studios available to choreographers in July and August.

All those who are working professionally in contemporary dance can apply to use the dance studios. Send us a dossier about the work you intend to do.  It can be a research period for the preparation of a new project. It can be part of the rehearsal period for an established production. It can also be a project created specially for the Summer Studios. For us it is essential that a creative process is taking place within our walls.

The Summer Studios offer professional dance studios (sprung floor, mirrors, sound installation, TV and DVD-player). 

If you'd like to take part in our Summerschool , you can also combine this with evening rehearsal time in the Summerstudios.

To apply, fill in this form. Deadline for application is April 27, 2017, you will get an answer from us at the beginning of June


The Summer Studios are supported by the Flemish Community Commission (VGC) and take place in the frame of the project [DNA] DEPARTURES AND ARRIVALS, which is co-financed by the Creative Europe program of the European Commission.
