Millepied began his training at the School of American Ballet (SAB) in the summer of 1992, and he continued his education there full-time in 1993 with the assistance of a grant awarded by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication (also known as the Bourse Lavoisier or Lavoisier grant).

Millepied was given guidance and direction early on in his career by the choreographer Jerome Robbins, who had taken an interest in him. During the Spring Workshop held by the School of American Ballet in 1994, he not only got the Prix de Lausanne but also originated a main role in Jerome Robbins’ premiere of 2 and 3 Part Inventions.

In 1995, Millepied became a member of New York City Ballet’s corps de ballet. Three years later, in 1998, he was elevated to the position of soloist, and in 2002, he was elevated to the position of main dancer. In 2011, Millepied, who would later go on to organize and oversee the L.A. Dance Project, received a commission from Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Los Angeles Music Center.

This contract was expected to endure for a period of two years. The annual operational budget of the business is close to one million dollars.  Millepied established the business in collaboration with other musicians such as composer Nico Muhly, producer Charles Fabius, composer Nicholas Britell, and Matthieu Humery.

In the year 2012, L.A. Dance Project took up permanent residency at Los Angeles Theatre Center with the intention of showcasing new works all throughout the city. On September 22, 2012, the L.A. Dance Project gave its first performance, which had been commissioned by The Music Center. The performance took place at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

L.A. Dance Project made the announcement in January 2014 that the Theatre at Ace Hotel would become the organization’s new home venue. By June of 2016, L.A. Dance Project had established a partnership with the LUMA Foundation in Arles, France, for a period of three years.

As part of this partnership, the LUMA Foundation provided the nine-member company with a continued residency as well as performance space in the foundation’s Parc des Ateliers. L.A. Dance Project will have the opportunity to work, create, and produce while in Arles for a total of five weeks per year, none of which will be consecutive.
