Zorepad Ukrainian Dance Ensemble
Zorepad, meaning Shooting Star, started back in 1976 in Troy, NY under the direction of Mrs. Roma Pryma Bohachevsky. In the 1980's, the group was moved to Watervliet, NY where it currently resides. For over 30 years, the ensemble has also studied under many guest instructors from NYC, hand picked by Mrs. Bohachevsky herself. Zorepad received steady instruction in the early 2000's from local news anchor and Ukrainian dancer, Lydia Kulbida. Zorepad now continues under the artistic direction of Peter & Adrienne Fil - both are former Syzokryli Ukrainian Dance Ensemble members with the legendary, prima ballerina, Roma Pryma Bohachevsky.
The ensemble could not have continued on without the help and dedication of Lydia Kulbida, also formerly of Syzokryli Ukrainian Dance Ensemble.
