The Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company of Siberia was founded in 1960 by Mikhail Godenko, and was hailed as a success from the very outset. Godenko created a repertoire of dances in collaboration with the Company’s musical director, composer Vladimir Kornev, Merited Artist of Russia, whose deep knowledge of Siberian folklore and dance were key in weaving music into the fabric of the overall performance. The Company’s elaborate costumes, based on traditional regional designs, were created by Merited Worker in Art of the Tuva Republic Yelizaveta Akselrod, and Merited Workers in Art of Russia Boris Knoblok, Vladimir Mamontov and Paulina Korotkova. The Company is currently led by Artistic Director Vladimir Moiseev, a grandson of the legendary Russian choreographer Igor Moiseyev.

In addition to regular performances across Russia, the Company has toured internationally to more than 60 countries, including Vietnam, Algeria, Tunisia, Australia, Japan, Vietnam, and the United States, as well as throughout both Europe and Latin America.
