The Music and Ballet School of Baghdad
The Music and Ballet School of Baghdad (Arabic,مدرسة بغداد للموسيقى و الباليه) was founded in Baghdad, Iraq in 1967. It was initially opened as part of Saddam Hussein's secularist cultural campaign.
In March 2016, the Associated Press reported that the school was facing financial difficulties owing to the government's budgetary crisis. According to the report, the Ministry of Culture had ordered the school to begin charging tuition.
