As the official school of Victor and Tatiana Kasatsky – The V&T Classical Ballet Academy provides a variety of programs specifically developed to encourage a young dancer’s 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. We welcome dancers in and around Orange County seeking the best dance training.

V&T could not be prouder of all our dancers and alumni. Many of our students excel in ballet competitions and are awarded scholarships and/or accepted at prestigious companies and colleges around the United States and Europe.

"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!"

Naomi G, Laguna Niguel, CA

"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."
