Our Nutcracker performances will be streamed live over Youtube this year on December 19th and 20th at 6pm. Links to the live stream video will be available here on our website 15 minutes prior to show time.
We’re bringing this presentation of the Nutcracker to our audiences for free. Donations to the Golden State Dance Foundation are welcome and will help support this Nutcracker production as well as our future productions.

V & T Dance Academy
As the official school of Victor and Tatiana Kasatsky – The V & T Dance Academy provides a variety of programs specifically developed to encourage a young dancers artistic expression. Each program is created to meet the dancer’s needs: the goal is to encourage the fulfillment of the dancer’s potential.
The V & T Dance Academy programs are based on the unique teaching method developed by Master teachers Victor and Tatiana Kasatsky. This teaching method centers on encouraging the dancers individual artistic, physical and emotional well-being.
Victor and Tatiana strive to help each student completely enjoy the art of dance; treasure the devotion to training, experience the technical accomplishments of the craft, and know the pleasure of artistic expression.
V & T could not be prouder of all our alumni. Many of our students have excelled in ballet competitions and been awarded scholarships and/or accepted at prestigious companies and/or colleges around the US and Europe.
In 2016, Aviva Gelfer-Mundl came to V&T Dance, and found herself in a warm and welcoming family environment. While a V&T student, she won 1st place at the YAGP Paris Semi-Finals (2017), became a Prize Winner of the prestigious Prix de Lausanne, and a Grand Prize Finalist in the Music Center Spotlight.
This afforded her an opportunity to study at the renown Vaganova Ballet Academy on scholarship for two years. In 2020, Gelfer-Mundl graduated from the Academy and will be joining Boston Ballet II for the 20-21 season.
Aviva is deeply grateful to have worked with Mr. Victor and Ms. Tatiana; for their support, expertise, attention to detail, and immense dedication to their students.
