Our Mission Is To Bring Joy To Audiences Through Our Ballet

The Kyiv City Ballet was founded in 2012 by Ivan Kozlov, the company's current General Director.  In the 10 years since its founding, the Kyiv City Ballet has grown to include 40 dancers, performed on four continents, and built a reputation as Ukraine's finest ballet company.

The Company's performances range from some of the world's most classic and beloved ballets (Swan Lake, The nutcracker, Romeo & Juliet) to more modern ballets, including the company's newest work, Boys From Kyiv.  This exuberant work is a tribute to the spirit of ukraine and a defiant response to the Russian invasion of the Kyiv City Ballet's Homeland.

The Kyiv City Ballet was in Paris, preparing to perform The Nutcracker, when Russia invaded Ukraine.  The Company has been stranded outside Ukraine since that day. 


Making the best of a horrible situation, the company spent the rest of 2022 performing throughout Europe and, for the first time, the United States, spreading a message of peace, hope, and resilience to enthusiastic audiences.  With no end to the war in sight, the company plans to continue touring in 2023.
