Kabardino-Balkarian State Folklore-Ethnographic Dance Ensemble “BALKARIA”


Country: Kabardino-Balkarian Republic Russian Federation

Director: ENEEV Magomet Huseevich

Chief Balletmaster: GOROEV Zhambulat Khakimovich

The State Folklore and Ethnographic Dance Ensemble “Balkaria” was founded in 1988. Based on the achievements of national choreography, the ensemble has created a true national folk art of the Karachais and Balkars.

The ensemble collective, soon after its creation, became widely known in Kabardino-Balkaria and began to travel with concerts to other republics, territories and regions of the Soviet Union. In recent years, the ensemble has toured in the North Caucasian republics and the Transcaucasus.

The ensemble not only perceives folk material, it improves it, polishes it, and works it out, creating works that reflect the new that is born in the life of peoples of different nationalities in the language of choreographic images.

The ensemble has successfully toured all over the Russian Federation, Japan, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Portugal, Spain, France, Swiss, Belgium, and Italy.
