The INM, the National Institute of Music-hall arts, is an association (based on the '1901 law') created on the 20th of July 2005. It is the first artistic professional training center dedicated to the Music-hall, prone to reinvent creative and contemporary entertainment content.
Based on field observation, the INM has focused its pedagogy on employement. Having their students perform on stage is the key for fast learning and artistic improvement. In opposition to any sort of indoctrination, the INM spotlights personal development and independant creativity.
