Moiseyev Ballet. 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 their ballet the best of the best. They undergo gruelling rehearsals and have to accept the inevitability of injuries – all in the name of art. They give the dance their all and are prepared to sacrifice their personal ambitions in order to reach perfection.
