In its 30 years of existence, the Académie Internationale de Danse in Biarritz has stood the test of time for teaching formal dance techniques in France. It provides access to high-quality classical ballet training, where mainstream instruction is represented with the Paris National Opera’s French style, the Russian style of the Bolshoi, Kirov and Vaganova Academy, and Cuban-style techniques. Its uniqueness is also the variety of repertoire workshops taught by Jiri Kylian, Jean-Christophe Maillot, Johan Inger, Nacho Duato, William Forsythe, and Thierry Malandain.
