The constant concern of the company Fêtes galantes for pedagogy led him to create the Atelier baroque in 2003. A place of research and transmission of his specific knowledge, he puts at the heart of his activity the cultural action and training of professionals . Anchored in its time, the Atelier Baroque is a place of discovery combining the past and the future.
In 2012, to celebrate its twenty years of existence, the company Fêtes galantes initiated La Pépinière de chorégraphes, a new creative space intended to accompany the company’s performers in their first steps as choreographers. Béatrice Massin and the company Fêtes galantes thus initiate a true current of creation energizing the new baroque.
