    Stéphen Delattre began to explore his love for choreography already at the age of 13.

As well as many private commissions from star dancers seeking signature Gala repertoire. Such as his 2012 creation for the star of the Paris Opera Ballet, Marie-Agnès Gillot, which was commissioned for 20th Anniversary of the Benois de la Danse and premiered at the illustrious Bolshoi Theatre. Delattre is also a favourite guest jury member for diverse international choreographic and dance competitions worldwide.
