Bolshoi Ballet’s timeline can be traced back to 1773, when a utilitarian and resourcing effort created an art monster unknowingly.  The ballet began not as a company but a mere dance school for channelling energies of children residing in one of Moscow orphanage. Unaware of the impressions and impact of the on the Russia’s local entertainment offering the school housed training of potential dancers for three years. In 1776, the trained dancers coming out of this school were acquired by an English theatrical entrepreneur Michael Maddox. Supported by Prince Pyotr Urusov the idea and the formation of a new theatre company was to shell dancers graduating from this school were. Hence the company was formed as soon as it began performing for private functions for elites mostly. Once the Ballet felt the need for a home, it made Petrovsky Theatre its very own. This theatre suffered time and tide and was later rebuilt to become the Bolshoi Theatre.
Bolshoi Ballet‘s early years  were rather rough as they were not the first one in the trade of ballet  entertainment. The Imperial Russian Ballet at that time which is now Mariinsky Ballet of St. Petersburg became its biggest competitor. The company struggled to offer finest, most classy, original and smooth presentation of Ballet ever. Bolshoi Ballet got tremendous opportunities and they staged their work quiet often. However it always fell short in some way or the other mostly due to the overall flow and production capacity of the company. Things changed when Alexander Gorsky became the Ballet Master in 1900 and rescued it from sinking deep. This creative genius overhauled the Bolshoi inside out.  Formulating a philosophy and forming an identity that complied with it, the Bolshoi Ballet rose with a facelift in a matter of months.
After the facelift given by Alexander Gorsky , the Bolshi Ballet won unprecedented public acclaim  and succeed whenever  it staged its productions.  Alexander Gorsky mastered the idea of creating the finest new ballets and also a variety of restaged ballets. The Bolshoi Ballet delivered timeless performances on the Don Quixote (1900) followed by  Coppélia (1901), Swan Lake (1901) and La fille mal gardée (1903). Eight years later Giselle (1911) allowed the ballet to offer new colors to classics like Le Corsaire (1912) and La Bayadère (1917).
Supported and funded by their following and their hard work the Bolshoi Ballet became analogous to quality entertainment. Although it stood out as one of the world's oldest ballet companies its offerings remained confined regionally.  With the political change in the early twentieth century, the Ballet was free to step outside. It did so and came back after achieving worldwide acclaim and became as big a name as rival Mariinsky Ballet.
