Roma Pryma-Bohachevsky

Prima ballerina
Artistic Director and Choreographer

The ensemble's artistic director is Roma Pryma-Bohachevsky, an internationally recognized prima ballerina and choreographer. Having started her career as a ballerina in Ukraine, she received a diploma from the Vienna Academy of Music and Performing Arts, and continued her studies in the United States. Ms. Bohachevsky's stage appearances have included solo performances and concert tours of Europe, North America and Central America. Eventually she turned to teaching and choreography, deeply influenced by the methods of Agrippina Vaganova and Martha Graham, with whom she studied.

Among Ms. Bohachevsky's many choreographic creations are "Peer Gynt," "Kvit Paporoti" (Blossoming Fern), and "Cinderella," which have been danced over the years by hundreds of her students.

But the most impressive choreographies are unquestionably those that she created specifically for the "Syzokryli" ensemble, comprised of her most talented students. Each choreography brings out the beauty of the Ukrainian theme developed in the dance, interwoven with elements of ballet, modern and stylized folk dance. Among her creations are "Battle for Freedom," a dramatic ballet commemorating the tragedy of Chernobyl, and "Icon," a historical recreation celebrating the millenium of Christianity in Ukraine.
