Created in 2003 by Bartabas in the Grande Ecurie du Chateau, the National Equestrian Academy of the Versailles Estate is a unique ballet corps in the world. Based on the transmission as much as on the art of representation, daily teaching combines dressage of the High School with various disciplines such as artistic fencing, dance, singing or Kyudo - Japanese archery. Bartabas has seized on this exceptional royal space and offered to some the chance to be naked, to discover, to surpass, and thus, to dig the furrow of an original and original artistic writing .

In the Grande Écurie of the Château de Versailles, the Academy presents La Voie de l'Écuyer, a show choreographed by Bartabas and a reflection of this Company school. The Academy also serves original creations in unusual places such as the Grand Palais of Paris, the Abbey of Saint-Ouen in Rouen, the ancient theater of Fourvière, the Riding School of Salzburg ...
