The CCNs

The Centres chorégraphiques were created starting in 1984. Today there are 19 of them spread over different regions.  The Association des Centres chorégraphiques nationaux was formed in 1995 in Caen, about fifteen years after the creation of the first CCNs.

The ACCN’s goal is to organize exchanges and discussions among the staff at the Centres chorégraphiques nationaux, around the tasks assigned to them by the government and local authorities: producing and promoting new work, hosting companies and residencies, developing choreography, training, documenting and sometimes programming.  These reflections are measured against public policies promoting the performing arts, in order to foster dialogue with a great many actors in the arts and culture.

The ACCN is also a platform for exchanging information (especially technical), used by its members and public partners such as the Direction Générale de la Création Artistique (DGCA) / Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication. Finally, the ACCN’s goal is to have the choreographer/directors’ viewpoints and positions heard collectively. Today the organization comprises the 19 currently active CCNs.
