The history of the dance company, which was established by one of the greatest figures of choreography of the 20th century and has collected a unique treasury of folk dancing culture, features the word “First”, repeatedly flashing throughout its chronicles in golden letters.

●  World’s first professional folk dance ensemble.
●  World’s first folk dance theatre.
●  World’s first dance company on a diplomatic mission for establishing transnational cultural relations on all continents.

Pioneering is the quality that predetermined the development of the imaginative genius of Igor Moiseyev, whose career started as a principal of the Bolshoi Theatre ballet company, which was also where he made his debut as a choreographer. Despite his substantial liking of and respect to the great traditions of the past which had nurtured his experience as a performer and director, Moiseyev was striving to look beyond the visible horizons and bravely tread where no man had ventured before, starting with the first steps taken on his artistic path. In his quest into the unknown, the Maestro relied on his unquenchable thirst for acquiring knowledge, an exquisite ear for music, innate sense of movement, insatiable hunger for novelty and the belief that life is a gift from great Nature. His worldview was broader than social and political constructs; his concept of the man reached beyond differences in status and daily habits; and his artistic aspirations were larger than guild-imposed ambitions. The genre Moiseyev discovered and established, the character dance genre, became the ultimate expression of his philosophy of art as the philosophy of goodness and creativity.
