A school that gives every pupil every opportunity

At Mosa Ballet School, excellence goes hand in hand with equal opportunities. We welcome all students, with their diverse backgrounds, and are committed to forging ahead with them. At the end of the programme, we facilitate their integration in the world’s largest companies. However, since life does not always turn out as we expect, we also offer them a firm foundation, thanks to a successful secondary school education. Our partnership with the Athénée Charles Rogier, a renowned establishment, is based on common values and ongoing dialogue between the teams. Special attention is paid to each student, with an integrated and all-round approach.
