Ballet is an Art of Classical Dance that can conquer people’s heart and penetrate into the human soul bringing joy and happiness, grief and tears, excitement and sorrow.
Ballet performances display life events in the magic atmosphere showing love and death, glamour and sorrow, danger and delight veiled by mystique ambiance.

Ballet is universal. Though it has French and Italian roots its Motherland is in Russia. Thus the words “Russian Ballet” are symbolic and guarantee a high professional level of performances.

Ballet was first established in Russia in two metropolises – St. Petersburg and Moscow – and there were founded two schools there to answer the demands of the public reflecting atmosphere of the cities: restrained and academic in St. Petersburg, enthusiastic and emotional in Moscow. Moscow ballet has always been characterized by its energy and eloquence.
