The repertoire includes the largest works of classical ballet, as well as many roles in modern ballets. Critics say that “Olga Kifyak was born to dance and in a short time has become principal ballerina par excellence. From the dramatic to the lyrical to the tricks of a master, Kifyak has it all – public accolades and professional awards”. “A graduate of the Ukrainian Academy of Dance in Kyiv, Kifyak held the audience’s attention throughout the score, moving the tragic story along with her incredible footwork and graceful arm sweeps. Kifyak’s small frame disguised a powerful repertoire that included standing on tiptoe for minutes at a time.”
Critics call her acting “superb, her extensions in the pas de deux sky-high and her 32 fouettes razor-sharp”
