AluapDans
Paula Marques Dance Company and Conservatory

AluapDans - Paula Marques Dance Company is a Non-Profit Association, established in January 2010, headquartered in Cascais.

Since then it works as:

  •  Paula Marques- Dance Company

  •  Paula Marques- Conservatory of Dance and Arts


As a company, it has been developing its own repertoire for children and the general public, being represented by the Portuguese Society of Authors. It also develops works with students and supports artists in the production of shows.


As a Conservatory of Dance, it began by developing regular free-form teaching, as well as some occasional activities such as workshops and private lessons.

Later, in 2012, it was recognized by the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA). Since then, it has taught certified programs and submitted students to examinations in subjects such as of modern jazz, tap dance, classical ballet and theatre craft.

In June of 2017, it was recognized by the Portuguese Ministery of Education, therefore allowing it to teach recognized official courses within the scope of Specialized Artistic Dance Education.


The Conservatory, due to social responsibility reasons, grants scholarships to underprivileged students who are distinguished for their technical and artistic qualities.
