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.
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.
At the Mosa Ballet School, excellence means equality of opportunity and diversity of their journey.
Regardless of the student candidates’ geographic, cultural or socio-economic origins, equal eligibility to the auditions will be based solely on talent, merit and potential.
By paying particular attention to diversity and inclusion, the Mosa Ballet School commits itself to never refuse a talented dancer due to lack of financial means and guarantee the same opportunities by granting scholarships (full or partial) depending on the real situation of the families.
Whatever their financial situation, the Mosa Ballet School invites any talented, motivated, and rigorous young dancer to come to the audition.

A school year at the Mosa Ballet School consists of 3 components:
For Belgians and European Union nationals, the fee is EUR 8,500 per school year.
For the years 2022-2023, 2023-2024 and 2024-2025, this rate is reduced to 6,375 euros.
For Non-European pupils, this fee amounts to 17,000 euros, reduced to 12,750 for the years 2022-2023, 2023-2024 and 2024-2025
In Belgium, compulsory education is free of charge. School costs are limited to purchasing the necessary equipment and a symbolic contribution to the institution’s costs, which is communicated at the beginning of the school year.
The boarding school
Accommodation and full board, 7 days a week, are offered at a single rate of 4800 euros per school year.
For students who do not stay at the boarding school on weekends, the rate is reduced to 4000 euros per school year.
The expenses of host families
For students who cannot go home at weekends but prefer to stay with a host family, a contribution of 1200 euros per year is required to cover living expenses (i.e. 5200 euros for the boarding + host family formula).
This is mandatory for students who are not accommodated at the boarding school.
Lunchtime meals are taken at school to ensure a balanced diet for all students. This package is offered at a rate of 1,200 euros per school year.
The opportunity to tread the boards and the resulting professional development are fundamental components of training. Students evolve through collaboration, not from a single, dedicated and associated company, but with diverse companies, stages and cultural players worldwide.
Students are asked to participate in shows produced by the school starting from the very first cycle. Young talented people will dance on the great regional stages (Opera, Theatre, etc.) during the following key moments: demonstration of the school with a selection of pupils, year-end gala, etc.
Depending on the years, students will be able to attend competitions in Belgium and abroad. These tests are highlights of the training and will allow students to learn how to manage performance stress while promoting the quality of the school.
More specifically, during the 6th year, the school will offer its students the opportunity to perfect and prepare to join the largest international companies
The training delivered at the Mosa Ballet School was designed as a “dance-studies” programme for students aged 12 to 18.
If students are no longer obligated to attend school in their country of origin, they can nevertheless complete the final training cycle (between 16 and 18 years old) under specific conditions.
Please contact us directly if you have any questions.
By transforming this bank headquarters into a “sustainable” artistic school, the team selected every detail to offer future students high-performance professional equipment and a bright, friendly living environment, which allows them to remain fully focused on their goals support their life balance.
The Mosa Ballet School offers 100 full boarding places in brand new facilities.
The boarding school is located in the Mosa Ballet School building proper in order to avoid travel and guarantee the safety of the pupils.
Meals, developed by a dietician, are taken in the bright and functional 120-seat school restaurant.
A green outdoor relaxation area is also provided, as well as paramedical support booths.
A host family system is in place for boarders who cannot go home during weekends/school holidays or for students who do not wish to stay at the boarding school during weekends.
It is also possible to stay at the boarding school during the weekends, with a catering package included.
For students who do not stay at the boarding school, there is a compulsory half-board option.
If dance lessons are provided in English, general education is provided in French.
Of course, if you do not speak French, we advise you to familiarise yourself with the language.
Furthermore, the Mosa Ballet School offers intensive French courses during August preceding the arrival at school. These courses are offered at a very affordable rate. We can also refer you to external entities that are known for their efficiency. Moreover, students who have difficulty due to language at the beginning of the school year are specifically supervised.
The Mosa Ballet School teams are at your side to ensure proper registration follow-up with the Athénée Charles Rogier, especially if you come from abroad.
As soon as a foreign student enrols, the Directorate of the Athénée Charles Rogier introduces an application for equivalence of a general education diploma in their name (conditional to successfully passing the current year) to the competent authorities.
The Athénée may already give a provisional opinion, but the official procedure lasts an average of one month. At the end of this procedure, several cases are possible:
- the student is admitted to the school year equivalent to their level of training
- the student may be placed into a lower school year. Example: a 15-year-old student from a country outside the European Union who has already studied for 3 years in secondary education in their country of origin might be admitted to a 3rd-year class rather than a 4th-year class, depending on the scale of equivalence applied by the competent authorities.
- in the rare cases where a diploma equivalence cannot be found, the Mosa Ballet School and the Athénée Charles Rogier will look with you to find the best alternative to ensure your general education. Solutions exist, and we are here to support you in every way.
We also support you in your potential visa grant process.
The curriculum of general secondary education and dance training are independent of each other. Therefore, a student may advance to the next year in dance but not in general education and vice-versa.
Secondary education in Belgium is organised across 6 years. Evaluation is ongoing throughout the school year. Examination sessions are held in December and June. The student is evaluated by the Class Council. In the event of failure, the student may be required to retake one or more exam subjects at the end of August. Their transition to the next higher year is conditional on successfully passing this exam.
The success of the artistic year and the transition to a higher level in dance is evaluated by the teaching teams and the Artistic Director of the Mosa Ballet School.
The two educational entities are closely linked in order to understand the specific situation of each student.
Students attend their general education at the Athénée Charles Rogier.
Teaching is delivered in French.
For each student, a collaboration agreement is signed between the Athénée and the Mosa Ballet School.
The schedules are adapted to the dancers by combining the best school curriculum and intensive dance practice.
Classes are held on the premises of the Athénée (located less than 5 minutes walk from the Mosa Ballet School) on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8.10 am to 12.35 pm (a maximum of 5 sessions of 50 minutes per day). A 15-minute break is scheduled from 9.50 am to 10.05 am.

|Total number of hours||24||24||23||20|
The morning is followed by a lunch break directly after return to the Mosa Ballet School.
The afternoons are dedicated to choreographic teaching.
Students take about 20 hours of dance lessons (and associated activities) per week at the first level and reach about 35 hours per week in the last cycle.
The grid provides the courses in classical, contemporary, repertoire, character dances, pas de deux, etc., and sessions in soft skills focusing on self-listening and breathing, such as yoga or Qi-gong (specific choices to be confirmed).
The precise list of the subjects taught in each learning level will be detailed shortly.
