Established in 1945 by dance masters Iliko Sukhishvili and Nino Ramishvili, The National Ballet of Georgia is renowned for strong and agile dancers and performances full of color, vitality and cultural symbolism that reflect this former Soviet Union state. Now under the guidance of Tengiz Sukhishvili, Iliko’s son, as their Artistic Director and Manager, in Italy the company was proclaimed “The Best Folkloric Ballet in the World.” The magic of how The National Ballet of Georgia performs is discovered in their technique of dancing and astonishing acrobatic leaps using only their toes.

For 6 rigorous years, dancers are trained to become part of this prestigious company. They have performed in over 88 countries to the delight of more than 50 million audience members.
