Main Program (12-18)


Description

The Main Program is organized into 6 dance levels and is aimed at students aged 12 to 18. It is a hybrid program that consists of intensive high-level dance practice associated with general secondary education within our partner school, the Athénée Charles Rogier, located a short distance from the Mosa Ballet School.

Each student at Mosa follows, in parallel with their dance course, a school course that will allow them to obtain a secondary school diploma. The schedules are adapted for the dancers, allowing them to reconcile two demanding courses.
 

Students over 16 may choose, under strict conditions,
to follow alternative secondary education


• Students must already have a solid academic foundation and must continue their studies. Specifically, these students must first have completed Year 4 of secondary school (typically, students aged 15-16 years). For students currently enrolled at Mosa, eligible students are those completing Year 4 of secondary school and those currently enrolled at Liège 1 in Years 5 or 6. Incoming students for 2023-2024 must check equivalence on the government portal (www.equivalences.cfwb.be). Our team can help where necessary.  

• Students must be enrolled in a full-time school program, which must either lead to the baccalaureate or be equivalent to a full year of higher/post-secondary education.  

• Students must demonstrate their commitment and motivation to their academic studies by submitting their report cards and proof of attendance. Please be aware that enrolment without real commitment can lead to exclusion from Mosa.  

• Students must observe the same academic schedule as those who attend classes at Liège 1, i.e. study in the Mosa classrooms from 8.10 am to 12.30 pm.  

Additionally, for logistical and security reasons, any student wishing to enroll in an external school program must be at least 16 years of age on the 31st December immediately following the start of the school year. For students under 18 years of age we must have prior written consent of their parents and/or legal guardians.  

Finally, students will be required to take compulsory French lessons if they do not have at least a B1 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The tuition fee includes 1 hour of French lessons per week. Additional courses will be offered at a charge.


A typical weekday starts with compulsory courses at the Athénée Charles Rogier in the morning, followed by a lunch break back at Mosa. Afternoons are dedicated to dance.
Core subjects include classical ballet, pointe technique/male technique, repertoire, and pas de deux. Associated subjects include contemporary dance, improvisation, character dance, ancient dances, art history and dance history, music, and dance anatomy. Finally, yoga, Pilates, and tai chi sessions contribute to our students’ overall well-being

Scholarships

At  Mosa Ballet School, excellence rhymes with equal opportunity, the school welcomes students from all socio-economic backgrounds.
Regardless of the geographic, cultural or socio-economic origins of the candidate-students, equal eligibility for auditions will be based solely on talent, merit and potential.
With particular attention to diversity and inclusion, the Mosa Ballet School strives never to refuse a talented dancer for lack of financial means and to guarantee everyone the same opportunities, by conditioning the granting of scholarships (full or partial) to the socio-economic situation of families.
Whatever their financial situation, the Mosa Ballet School therefore invites all talented, motivated and rigorous young dancers to come and audition.

Pre-Professional Program (18-20)



Description

The Pre-Professional Program is open both to students who have been invited after having successfully completed the 6th level of the Main Program at Mosa and to those who wish to participate as new students. For the latter, a preliminary auditions is mandatory.
Although the Pre-Professional Program shares a common core with Level 6 of the Main Program, it operates independently, with lessons spread out over the day.
Thus, there are no school obligations and it will be built on a different pace of learning, including regular morning activities that are specific to it.
The Pre-Professional Program is incompatible with a full school curriculum during the day.

Warning: if this program can be tempting for students wishing to free themselves from the constraints of secondary studies, we strongly advise against it for students who are slightly out of step with their academic course.
In accordance with our principle of schooling, students who are in 6th grade in their dance course, but who still have to complete a year of secondary studies, will be invited to repeat 6th grade in dance, in order to obtain their academic diploma.

Hourly load

The number of hours of dance training is approximately 30h per week.

 

For Who?

This program is open to students between the ages of 18 and 20 on December 31 following the start of the school year. Students under the age of 18 who have obtained their secondary school diploma (or equivalent) at the beginning of the school year are also welcome.
