Brussels International Ballet School works with students aged 14-19 who seek the highest standard of classical ballet education to prepare for a professional career.


It is a three-year intensive professional training program (2 years is compulsory, 3 recommended) for graduation into professional international ballet companies.

Working daily under Anderson Santana’s artistic direction, and his faculty's careful guidance, students develop the essential skills to fully explore and realise their greatest individual potential. This program is based on the Vaganova method, a system of training that is logical, thought-provoking, inspiring, and highly effective. There is great emphasis on our men's program, focusing on the development of the strength, stamina, and masculinity associated with strong male technique.

Along with daily lessons in classical technique, students are immersed in learning the classical repertoire and are exposed to a variety of workshops to develop fluency in various styles of dance.
