"My daughter started ballet at V&T when she was ten years old and a little older than the rest of the girls at her level so we weren't sure how it would go, but in a little over a year she has improved so much thanks to the exceptional teaching of Victor, Tatiana, and Karen. She loves her classes and the girls have been so sweet, she would practically live there if she could!"

"Our three children, two boys (18, 16yo) and a girl (10 yo). We drive 6 days from San Diego to V & T Dance at Laguna Hills for their dance training. Their dance curriculum is the most well-rounded we have seen. Our children have improved tremendously and have given many opportunities to perform. Victor and Tatiana are warm and friendly and understands how to bring out the strengths of each child."

Brilliant Kids M, Carlsbad, CA

"If you are serious about educating your dancer in the Orange County area, V and T dance should be your first option. Victor and Tatiana Kasatsky are former Moscow Ballet principal dancers who teach Russian classical. Their approach is hands on, expecting the very best from their kids technically while nurturing a deep connection to the art."

Chip M, Laguna Beach, CA

"V&T Dance offers wonderful ballet training for dancers of all ages. They have a wonderful studio with great viewing opportunities for all classrooms. The classes are professional and provide excellent technique and reinforcement. The performances are wonderful with a holiday Nutcracker and Spring show. Dancers also get exposure into Hip Hop, Contemporary, Character and stretch. Overall excellent dance training!"

Anja A, Lake Forest, CA

"V & T Dance is a small studio of dancers dedicated to their instructors and to their art. This tight knit community of young dancers supports one another through classes, intensives, performances, and competitions, to an extent most dance studios can only dream of."
