We believe classical ballet is the foundation upon which any other dance style should be built. Ballet students learn to control their bodies and gain necessary strength and dexterity to be able to excel in other dance styles.

The ballet we teach is the classic Vaganova style ballet (think of Russian ballet). It might seem demanding, but believe us you will be surprised what kind of impact it a honed over years training technique can have.

Our principal teacher is Karina Melikyan, who has been studying ballet professionally for her entire life. KKSD is proud to offer ballet classes for all ages and levels, tots to teenagers, as well as conditioning ballet and technique for adults of any age. Private ballet classes are available upon request and upon availability.


Explore the rich world of dance with KKSD. We believe there are no limits to a human being, everyone should have the opportunity to visit multiple countries, speak many languages and talk to very very different people. In the same spirit we believe one cannot flourish by dancing only ballet, only salsa, or only ballroom. We offer to expand your horizons by participating in our character dance classes. From classical Greek to folk dances of Slavic people we have it all.
