Full member. Founding member of the association in May 2009
Year of foundation
The notion of “development” is the driving force of CDCN – La Place de la Danse. Development applies to: creation (of artistic residencies, production), professional training (Extensions – a two year training programme), and enabling a culture of choreography for audiences. Every year, CDCN Toulouse co-produces and offers residencies to 15-20 artistic teams. It operates as an executive producer for some companies, who benefit from links with A-CDCN network members and with other European networks.
During the performance seasons and the annual festival “ICI&LÀ”, the programme blends new forms of creation with touchstone works from 20th-21st century dance, thereby consolidating the public’s choreography culture.
The CDCN Toulouse infrastructure consists of one studio of 250 m² with 100 seat capacity, a rehearsal studio of 150 m², 7 residential rooms with bathroom and work space facilities and a fully equipped kitchen.
La Place de la Danse is part the national network of choreographic development centres ‘A-CDCN’ (Association des Centres de développement chorégraphique nationaux) in France. CDCN Toulouse was the first of 11 CDCN dancehouses to be created.
