FAQ

The Mosa Ballet School’s teaching is aimed at adolescents of age to follow secondary school in parallel, between approximately 12 and 18 years old.

Depending on their birth date, some children start their education at the age of 11 and a half years old and some teenagers complete it a little later.

We are opening up access to the 6-year course from September 2022.  

The auditions are therefore open to children and teenagers between 11 and 17 years old. The youngest candidates should be able to enter secondary 1 in September 2022. 

To attend the audition, you had to fill out a registration form. If you successfully pass the audition, we will personally contact you to confirm your registration at the Mosa Ballet School and guide you in the administrative process to be carried out according to your situation.
