Captivated by Genius
The Moiseyev Ballet is a world-known and loved folk dance ensemble, which has played an important role in establishing Russia’s international cultural ties since its inception in 1943.
Its dancers are under constant pressure to do justice to the legacy of its visionary founder, Igor Moiseyev, and to keep proving the Ballet’s leadership among folk dance groups of the world.
They undergo gruelling rehearsals and have to accept the inevitability of injuries and health problems – all in the name of art.
Yet they are always trying to reach perfection, no matter the cost.
They give the dance their all and, unlike in classic ballet, are prepared to share fame with each other, rather than stand out as lead dancers.
