Under the joint initiative of the city of Biarritz and the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the MALANDAIN BALLET BIARRITZ was created in 1998 under the leadership of Thierry Malandain. Since their foundation MALANDAIN BALLET BIARRITZ became one of the most important cultural institute in the Aquitaine region.
The repertory of the company is mostly from Thierry Malandain himself but he also invites regularly foreign choreographers. Ballet Biarritz performs in France and other parts of the world like the USA, China and the Middle East. MALANDAIN BALLET BIARRITZ is eager to have a close relationship with the audience and offers workshops as well as presentations for the dance loving youth and the grown-ups.
