Olena Pechenyuk
Honored Artist of Ukraine
Prima Ballerina

Born in 1987, in Dnipro (formerly Dnipropetrovsk), Ukraine.
“A Ballerina with a special gift and an Individual style”
At the age of 14, Olena made her debut in the role of Lisa in Hertel’s “Vain Caution” and received general recognition in the Ukrainian Ballet world, as well as a Diploma Award. Then successful performances at the All-Ukrainian Ballet competition “Youth Ballet-97” in Donetsk and a first place at the International Ballet Competition “Youth Ballet-2000” on the stage of the National Opera in Kyiv was the start of a successful journey for Olena.

After graduating from ballet school in Dnipro, Olena continued her education in advanced classes at the Ballet Academy named after John Cranko in Stuttgart (2004–2005).

In 2005 Olena returned to Dnipro Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and became Prima Ballerina.

Her repertoire includes the main role in “Sleeping Beauty” (Aurora) and “Giselle”, “Romeo & Juliet” (Juliet), “Pakhita”, “The Nutcracker” (Masha), “Carmen”, “Cinderella”, “Corsair” (Medora), “Don Quixote” (Kitri), “Swan Lake” (Odetta – Odile) and many others.

One of the bright national choreographic heritages was the ballet “Princess Olga” to the music of  Stankovich. The role of Princess Olga was performed by Olena. Her character turned out to be gentle, lyrical, sensual, but determined and strong-willed. The ballerina harmoniously combined the epic scale of the historical character with the sincere insight and depth of the image.

An intense creative life gives Olena the opportunity to express herself not only in complex parts of the classical repertoire, but also in modern choreography. As an Honored Artist of the Ukraine, the Prima Ballerina enthusiastically supports the bold ideas of ballet masters. “Lady with Camellias”

In 2017 Olena received the prize for the best female role in the visual performance “Carmen&Jose”.

Each performance with the participation of Olena is invariably a great success with the public and is worth attending. Each of the creative works confirms Olena’s undeniable right to the status of the first ballerina in the company.

Since 2022 Olena is  Prima Ballerina in Ukrainian Dance company “Soul of Classical Ballet” (Ukrainian Ballet of Peace).
