The company was founded in 1989 as the “Moscow Festival Ballet,” under the direction of the acclaimed dancer of the Bolshoi Theatre, Sergei Radchenko — Honored Artist of Russia. The first independent company of classical ballet began to develop rapidly and a lot of touring in many countries. Toward the goal, the ballet decided to create a specialized company, the Russian National Ballet Theatre, under the direction of Elena Radchenko – soloist dancer of Mariinsky- Kirov Theatre and the Bolshoi Theatre.

The Russian National Ballet has been bringing timeless ballet classics to the stage of North America since 1999. Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980’s, the company used their newfound creative freedom, influenced by the rapidly evolving political environment, to invigorate the tradition of Russian Ballet with new developments in dance from around the world.
