The James Carlès Centre is a recognised hybrid choreographic hub grouped into three entities:
The amateur practice with more than 20 dance disciplines proposed for: adults, teens and children over the age of 3.
The Professional Training with an establishment recognised by the state and funded by the Regional Counsel of the Midi-Pyrénées and the Aquitaine region for the preparation of the “EAT” and professional insertion/scene preparation. This training pole is equally open to all dance professional as an auditor via ERD (Entraînements Réguliers du Danceur). It also develop through diverse partnerships as in the case with the University of Mirail (Toulouse), le CESMD, CEFEDEM, Music’halle, le Pôle jazz de Marciac….
Workshops and Master Classes. We organise three key events: the "techniques fondatrices" workshop in the fall, the winter and summer international workshop within the framework of "Dances, Toulouse, Dance !". For these occasions, meetings are taken up with a number of well-known choreographers, educators and researchers.
Research with the G2RC, group created in 2007, is oriented towards a new project around contemporary music (jazz and other aesthetics).
