Beryozka Ballet (full name is the State Academic Choreographic Ensemble “Beryozka”) was founded in 1948 by the outstanding dancer and choreographer Nadezhda Nadezhdina.
The name of the ensemble is taken from the first production of the Russian girls’ round dance, called the Khorovod, Little Birch (Beryozka) staged in 1948 to the music of the Russian folk round-dance song “A Little Birch Stood in the Field.” The women of the ensemble holding birch twigs in their hands, personifying the image of the Russian girl, her purity, beauty, and grace, performed the dance.
Beryozka have traveled over 80 countries. Touring of Beryozka is always accompanied by a triumphant success and brings the team international recognition.
