The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s. Many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions began to exercise their new-found creative freedom by starting vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate it as the Russians began to accept new developments in global dance. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception.
