Ballet culture in Russia

Russia has become the epicentre of ballet

Originally, the purpose of the ballet in Russia was to entertain the czar (Russian king) and his imperial court. The first ballet company in Russia was the Imperial School of Ballet, founded in St. Petersburg way back in the 1740s.

Later on, the most influential ballet company was Ballets Russes, founded in 1909. The company traveled abroad and profoundly influenced the development of dance worldwide. Finally, an offspring of the first Russian ballet company, George Balanchine, founded the New York City Ballet Company in 1948.

Today, ballet is not only a very intelligent and aesthetic entertainment for the audience but also a lot of fun for your kids. When they dance, they are learning to feel and value the joy of dance moves and receiving excited applause from their “imperial court” – you!

During the last 20th century, Russian ballet dancers rose to fame and preserved the perfection of ballet traditions. Russia’s choreography schools produced one internationally famous star after another. Nowadays, the Bolshoi Ballet Theater in Moscow and the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg remain famous throughout the world. Both of these theaters tour regularly in the USA.

From Russia with Love
From Russian ballet in the 1740s to modern-day ballet in New York, it is clear that both Russia and the US  celebrate a long history with the love of ballet. It continues with our children and teaches them the same techniques that have been performed for hundreds of years. That doesn’t mean learning them has to be stuffy and stiff. Dance to EvOLvE has perfected the art of teaching classical ballet to kids as young as two in a fun and enriching environment.  Sign up for a trial class to unleash the historic potential in your child!
