Moiseyev Dance Company, Beryozka Folk Dancers
Moiseyev / Beryozka

The Moiseyev and Beryozka folk dance ensembles, established in the former Soviet Union, first performed in the United States in 1958 and 1959, and they received rave reviews. The artistic dances they present, inspired by local traditions, are typically set to a fast, upbeat pace and require many fluid movements and leaps. Music generally consists of accordion and balalaikas. The troupes continue to tour today, and this recording recalls some of their American performances.
