For its 6th season, Constellation, a programme of artistic and cultural education, is being rolled out across several regions. A dozen or so organisations are experimenting with the tools and resources and implementing projects in their areas. The CN D is supporting them with training and support throughout the season.

Constellation was created in 2018 by the Centre national de la danse. This artistic and cultural education programme is aimed at a school audience and is part of the long "artistic education pathway" that each student experiences during their schooling. The stages of Constellation will contribute to making it a moment of discovery of the world of dance, of sharing an artistic experience that opens up new territories for sensitivity and the imagination. Over the course of the year, the encounter with new people, cultural places and works of art helps to discover new ways of living and thinking, opens up awareness and practice of the body, provides cultural references and contributes to the development of the personality. The actions carried out are in dialogue with the activities in the classroom and with the skills that are built there.

To achieve this, each group goes through an experience with an introduction in class, seven days of choreographic practice and mediation workshops, two conferences on the anatomy of the body and representations of the body throughout history, two performances, a parent-child workshop (for the 1st level), a day of meetings with other groups and a conclusion in class.
