Ways training program belgium
école supérieure danse

We train dancers in current techniques and practices and in building an artistic career.

They can be trained in two or three years of continuing education. Not far from Brussels (the European capital), our location offers easy access and interaction with social and cultural life. Our coaching and the pursuit of excellence in dance practice are major elements of our teaching practices.

Thanks to the various courses that make up the program, guest teachers, participation in cultural events and work with Belgian and international agencies, we build and strengthen our students’ skills. We also emphasize respect for our values: respect for the plurality of convictions, solidarity, and the dignity and honor of each individual. At the end of the training, dancers are ready to face the reality of the field and start a professional dance activity.

Whether in creation or interpretation, students trained at Ways will have a range of tools at their disposal to enable them to :
– Appear at auditions and castings with talent and flair

– Respond quickly to the demands from a choreographer or artistic director

– Interpret choreography with intelligence and creativity

– Stand out from the crowd and offer a personal approach to dance

– Manage your social status, contracts, insurances, etc.

– And much more!
