Ballet National de Marseille

Founded in 1972 by Roland Petit, the Ballet National de Marseille is a leading, internationally renowned dance company. In 1992, the creation of the École Nationale Supérieure de Danse de Marseille and the construction of a 6,000 m2 building housing nine rehearsal studios – two for the company and 7 for the school – and a 300-seat theatre, added yet more dimensions to the Ballet National de Marseille. The school welcomes an average of 120 young students a year, preparing them over nine years for a career in professional dance.
With a staff of seventy, 35 of whom are dancers, the activities of the Ballet National de Marseille, which is run today by Frédéric Flamand, are shaped by a genuine open-mindedness that transcends the traditional distinctions made between classical and contemporary dance.
Dance is therefore profoundly involved in a system of hybridisation through the relationships it has succeeded in maintaining, and always will, with architecture, plastic arts and visual arts.
