The Academy is an institution dedicated to excellence, built on the transmission of expertise and fertile exchange between different artistic disciplines. A place of creativity and sharing with the public, it was born of a unique adventure shining a spotlight on the equestrian arts in a contemporary way.
Bartabas, the founder of the project, transformed the Royal Stables into a stage. The horseman dreamed of creating his own equestrian ballet company, an exceptional troupe in which each artist could reveal their own talents and excel in original and unusual scenarios.
Outside of Versailles, the Academy also performs its “La Voie de l’Écuyer” show across France and abroad. The troupe puts on original shows in unusual locations and in collaboration with artists from different backgrounds.
La Voie de l’Écuyer
The Academy presents its repertory show, taking the form of a new Opus each year combining the art of dressage, singing, stage fencing, kyudo (Japanese archery), and dance.
The performance is followed by an unaccompanied tour of the Stables.
