Igor Moiseyev Ballet, the Greatest Folk Dance Company in the World

Established in 1937, the 78-year old Igor Moiseyev Ballet (Moiseyev Dance Company) is consistently acclaimed throughout the world as the greatest of all folk dance groups. The ensemble, honored as Russia’s official "State Academic Ensemble of Popular Dance,” has captivated international audiences for decades with its peerless technical brilliance and exuberant evocations of traditional dances. At the heart of the group’s success is the genius of its visionary artistic director, choreographer and founder, the late Igor Moiseyev. Today, the company’s fame is so widespread it is often identified merely by its legendary founder’s surname: Moiseyev.

America’s love affair with the Igor Moiseyev Ballet (Moiseyev Dance Company) began in 1958 when the impresario Sol Hurok brought it to New York’s old Metropolitan Opera House on 39th Street. The explosive 25 minute ovation it received then has not abated in the succeeding visits of the company to these shores, made in 1961, 1965, 1970, 1974, 1986, 1989, 1991, 1995, 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2008.
