ABOUT ME

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Kesh and I’m an ex-principal ballet dancer and a fully qualified passionate ballet teacher, yoga and surf teacher as well as a wife and mother of two.  

 

I grew up studying ballet at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, one of the world's most renowned ballet schools. I went on to have a successful professional career as a principal dancer, performing on some of the most prestigious ballet stages around the world. Now, my passion lies in sharing my knowledge and love of ballet with my students. You can read an article on ABC News about my upbringing here 

 

Today, I am excited to offer ballet classes for adults who are looking to rekindle their love of dance, or for those who are beginners seeking to learn from scratch. I also offer ballet classes for toddlers aged 2-4 years old, where we explore the joy of movement and encourage creativity through music, storytelling and imaginative play.

 

My classes are designed to be fun, supportive, and challenging, while also being tailored to meet the individual needs of each student. Whether you are a professional dancer wanting to refine your technique or an adult beginner looking to try something new, my classes offer a unique and rewarding experience.

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. For more information, 1:1 classes or to get in touch with me, please feel free to contact me via the contact form or email info@keshka.com. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you soon!
