Bords de scène (Onstage) with the dancers: After each school performances, company dancers, sometimes accompanied by members of our artistic staff, will answer students’ questions. This exchange lasts around 20 mn (reservation is required) and takes place in the theatre space of the Opéra national de Lorraine.

Visite du CCN – Ballet de Lorraine:

- Discovery
On the day of the performance or on another day of your choice, we offer a visit backstage at the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine. On the program: an exploration of the structure and the different professions, a visit of the building with the possibility of watching our company dancers at work.


- A thematic visit:
If students have already experienced a “Discovery” visit during previous seasons, we can re‑focus the visit differently, featuring certain aspects of each profession, stages in artistic creation, or tips on better understanding and viewing the performances.

The “Discovery” and “Thematic” visits are free if the students will be attending school or non‑scholastic performances. Limited to one visit per class per season (dates to be chosen per our artistic and technical calendar).
And if you cannot come to the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine, a member of our staff can set up a “virtual” visit in your establishment.

Going farther:

Linked to the programming of the CCN - Ballet de Lorraine or as part of a general initiation into the  art of choreography, we can imagine and build with you specific projects. With a strong component in artistic practice, these projects would be led by Joris Perez, our community outreach specialist as well as choreographic artist, and may consist of one or several sessions.
Single price: 54 euros HT/ hour.
