P.A.R.T.S at DANSAND! festival in Ostend

To close the academic year we will dance into the summer at the DANSAND! festival in Ostend. DANSAND! is a festival for dance and movement. This year the focus is on encounter and connection with a three-day program full of performances at special locations. P.A.R.T.S. is a regular and welcome guest at DANSAND!, in the past there have been numerous creations with guest choreographers, site-specific performances and graduation works. This year, the Training students present a series of solos.

Last year, about 40 new students from the bachelor program Training started their adventure at P.A.R.T.S. Guided by our personal work coaches Christine De Smedt and Femke Gyselinck, each student was given the task to create a solo from their own interests and background. At DANSAND! 2021 they will share the solos with an audience for the first time, reworked for the special context of DANSAND!
In addition, you can see them at work in a collective improvisation where they respond to the architectural environment and natural elements.

The students will perform continuously at the Dansba'r between 11am and 5pm on Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th.

The students will start their daily warm up as early as 10am.
Have you ever wondered how professional dancers get ready for a performance? You will have the chance to stretch your legs on the beach, together with our students. Put on your dance clothes and join this collective warm up!
