Our Story

Founded in 1993 by Béatrice Massin, Fêtes Galantes elaborates on the many aspects of baroque dance.

The confrontation between baroque style and contemporary dance gives birth to a specific writing.

By steering clear of any attempt at reconstitution, the company chose to bring forward, in our time, a kind of baroque that would interest the contemporary.

Leading the charge is Beatrice Massin, who has been dancing and choreographing since she was just 10 years old.  You can occasionally catch her teaching classes when she isn’t directing.
