Founded in 1970, the École Chorégraphique de Lyon specializes in ballet. Undoubtedly one of the best dance schools in Lyon, it teaches young children; through its dance and study section, it also coaches older students for the entrance examinations to the best international schools. Under the attentive tutelage of an excellent management and teaching team, the classes combine a strict attention to detail to the pleasure of dancing. As a consequence, its students are more numerous every year and often succeed in the competitions they enter.
The purpose was to follow one year in pictures, then in video the following year; I was commissioned to take photographs and make a video of its end of the year show, and also make portraits of its students at the beginning of the year.
