Our History

Philippe Gaulier founded his school in 1980. Travel shapes young people. As does freedom.“I was young. I had invented a game which consisted of throwing a ball over the branch of a tree in Parc Monceau. The opposing team had to catch the ball without it touching the ground. Passers-by stopped and watched. They envied us.”
