In 1969, the ballet choreographer Antony Tudor suggested Ms. Melikova join the dance faculty at The Juilliard School. She was a gifted teacher and taught there for 26 years where she choreographed and directed Vivaldiana (March 1985) and restaged the Pas de trois from George Balanchine’s Paquita. She also taught at the Igor Youskevitch School of Ballet and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, directed the Bridgeport Ballet Company in Connecticut and was a guest instructor at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College.
Ms. Melikova was the first Western ballerina to perform with Rudolf Nureyev after his defection to the West in 1961. They danced together numerous times – The Sleeping Beauty and the Black Swan Pas de deux – in France, Italy, and Israel (Ballet Today April 1964). She also danced with the Grand Ballet Classique de France and the London Festival Ballet (1963–64) before moving to New York where she performed at Radio City Music Hall and on Broadway.

She performed briefly with American Ballet Theatre before joining the Paris-based Grand Ballet du Marquis de Cuevas company (1954–1962), the first European troupe to feature ballets by American choreographers and American dancers. Her roles included Aurora and the Lilac Fairy in The Sleeping Beauty and Odette-Odile in Swan Lake.
