As holder of the label Centre Chorégraphique National, the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine is a mandated supporter of professional choreographic companies, and actively participates in the renewal and the evolution of the contemporary dance sector. For that, one specific program has been created by the Ministère de la Culture (French Ministry of Culture and Arts) in 1998 : the accueil-studio.

This publicly funded program allows a Centre Chorégraphique National to host a professional company for a paid residency, and to accompany them financially for an upcoming creation. Between 4 and 6 dance companies (regional, national or international) are hosted for residencies at CCN – Ballet de Lorraine every season. These residencies often are an opportunity for the company to give public rehearsals in our studios, or to give workshops open to everyone.
