Igor Moiseyev Ballet

One of the greatest choreographers of the 20th century, Igor Moiseyev altered the course of evolution of the world choreography and transformed folk dance into a world heritage phenomenon.

Igor Moiseyev created a new genre of performing arts, which is theatrical folk dance; a new model of a professional ensemble, which is the folk dance troupe; and a new artistic method of folklore interpretation for the stage, which aims to develop and enrich folklore through professional art forms.

Having founded the world’s first ever professional folk dance troupe, Igor Moiseyev turned it into the unique folk dance theatre, where the flamboyant spirit of folklore, including improvisation, which is always unexpected and equally always welcomed, with natural ease breathed life into the austere forms of theatrical dance.

Igor Moiseyev was the first in the history of 20th century choreography to have transformed folk dance into something that would unite people of all nations regardless of their religion or political regimes. Wherever the troupe performs, the flexible and mobile model of the folk dance ensemble established by Moiseyev promotes the folk dance heritage of the world and enhances it with professional artistic techniques, so that it lives on in austere forms of performing arts.

Today, the repertoire of Igor Moiseyev Ballet comprises hundreds of acts overflowing with vivid stage images, lively characters and bold colours inspired by life itself.

This miracle, which has been making audiences burst into applause for seven decades straight, would not have been possible had not Igor Moiseyev mastered all the tiniest nuances of folk dancing as well as all the techniques and instruments of professional choreography, stage art and music, which formed the foundation of his unique artistic method for the theatrical interpretation of folklore.

Embodied in noble performance concepts and uniquely clear in their expression of the artistic idea, Igor Moiseyev’s works have become choreography classics understood by audience all over the world. They are always cutting-edge, feature colourful folk characters and are filled with love, joy, humour and life itself, which everyone will certainly hold dear.
