The Conservatoire de Paris is a college of music and dance founded in 1795 associated with PSL Research University. It is situated in the avenue Jean Jaurès in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, France. The Conservatoire offers instruction in music, dance, and drama, drawing on the traditions of the "French School".
In 1946 it was split in two, one part for acting, theatre and drama, known as the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique , and the other for music and dance, known as the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris . Today the conservatories operate under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
