Registration for auditions for the year 2023-2024 is open!

The aim of these auditions is to recruit students who are usually between 12 and 18 years old and who will join one of the 6 dance levels at the Mosa and one of the 6 years at the partner secondary school (Charles Rogier Liège 1).

They are held without pre-selection.

As a general rule, we strongly encourage you to audition face-to-face whenever possible.

If you are unable to attend one of the auditions in person, you have the opportunity to audition online

Scheduled Auditions

At Mosa Ballet School, on Saturday 7 January 2023 from 9am to 6pm

Just after a week of intensive course. The audition is open to all Belgian and international candidates, but we would like to draw your attention to the fact that for reasons linked to the organization of secondary education in Belgium, this is the only audition possible for pupils (Belgian and international) who will enter the first year of secondary education in 2023.

It is ideal to prepare for your audition with a week of intensive courses (more info at the bottom of this page).

The precise schedule (programme, timetable, groups) of these auditions will be communicated to the participants at the latest one week before.

In the meantime, we recommend that you remain available throughout the relevant weekend.

How to make your video?

The room should be well lit and provide sufficient contrast between the dancer and the background. The image should be stable and the student’s body should be visible in its entirety. We recommend that you film :

  • diagonal bar exercises
  • mid-face exercises

The video is without introduction or fancy editing, and includes the following elements, performed in leotards and tights for the girls and in tight dancewear for the men:

  • 3 to 5 minutes of barre work, incorporating both sides, danced in flats for boys and on pointe for girls.
  • 3 to 5 minutes of work in the middle including adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro, danced on pointe for the candidates.

For applicants aged 15 and over :

  • A short classical variation from the standard repertoire, danced on pointe for the candidates.
  • A short contemporary variation (which may consist of an extract from the repertoire, extracts from class work or a work created by the candidate) which illustrates the candidate’s mastery of a range of movements different from that demonstrated in the classical variation.
