The Moiseyev ensemble continues to perform at the highest standard, as it tours the world to meet an increasing demand for the finest in traditional dance.
Igor Moiseyev was awarded numerous orders and medals, including the Order of Merit for the Fatherland, First Class, Russia’s highest civilian decoration.
