Creation and tours

Malandain Ballet Biarritz is one of the few French companies to claim a neoclassical aesthetic; in other words, a dance that has in its DNA a choreographic grammar codified in the 17th century and which, like all living organisms, has been able to evolve right up to the present day.

Territorial cooperation center

Since moving to Biarritz, Malandain Ballet Biarritz has initiated projects with actors from the Southern Basque Country, and more particularly with some from the Guipuzcoan capital Donostia / San Sebastián through the Ballet T project.

Malandain Ballet Biarritz has made awareness-raising a major challenge in its choreographic development, and is rolling out a proactive programme aimed at the general public

Festival le Temps d'Aimer

Founded in 1990 by Biarritz Culture, Le Temps d'Aimer, of which Thierry Malandain is artistic director, brings the imperial city to life to the rhythm of dance for 10 days each year. Eclecticism, a close relationship with audiences and eco-responsibility are at the heart of its DNA...

Dancers' health

Malandain Ballet Biarritz has designed and implemented a tailor-made medical monitoring system for choreographic artists.


With a view to sharing the tool, the CCN de Biarritz contributes to a number of choreographic projects in the area where it is based, in France and internationally.
