Gret Palucca, a dancer and pedagogue, founded the Palucca School Dresden in 1925 and later renamed it the Palucca University of Dance Dresden (German: Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden). She continued to teach there until 1990. In 1993, the State of Saxony recognized The Palucca School Dresden as a higher education facility, and in 1999, it was granted permission to add University of Dance to its name. Its name was changed to Palucca University of Dance in 2010. The University has an integrated secondary school and thus the youngest pupils in Germany. Currently, there are about 200 pupils and students registered at Palucca University of Dance Dresden, two-thirds of which are female and one third are male.
