Russian National Ballet Foundation
National Ballet Foundation (Rossiyski
Nationalni Ballet Fond) was founded in 1993 in Moscow as a
charitable organization with the purpose of promoting the traditional
art of the Russian classical ballet and providing aesthetic education.
Its creation was supported by such prominent Russian organizations as
the Moscow Actors' Charitable Foundation under the guidance of Galina
Ulanova and the Stanislavsky and Nemorovich-Danchenko Moscow Musical
Theater. Its touring company, known as Russian Classical Ballet in North America, has toured
the world and earned a reputation for the unsurpassed quality of its
esteemed director, Valery Lantratov, who holds the title "People's
Artist of Russia," and assistant Director Rinat Arifulin, soloist with
the Bolshoi Ballet, will produce a repertory especially tailored to the
North American market.
The touring company draws from Russia's finest
theaters including the Bolshoi, Marinsky, Kremlin Ballet and the K.S.
Stanislavski and V.L. I. Nemirovich-Danchenko. The Russian
National Ballet Foundation's
performances are distinguished by their adherence to the great Russian
ballet tradition with its unparalleled technical beauty and artistry
and the dramatic use of scenic shapes.
In addition to
performance tours, the Russian National Ballet Foundation and Double V
Promotions do extensive educational outreach and are able to provide
guest artists from the Bolshoi and other Moscow theaters,
and master teachers from the Moscow Choreographic School and The
National Academy of Theatrical Arts (GITIS) in Moscow.
