Boroka Nagy, born in Budapest, Hungary, hails from New York City, where she trained at the prestigious Alvin Ailey School for much of her dance career. She completed her B.F.A. as a double major in dance and film studies at The Ailey School in conjunction with Fordham University. In 2015, Boroka obtained her M.F.A. in Dance from the University of California-Irvine, researching choreography, screendance and curation.

Boroka has performed nationally and internationally, including in many legendary NYC dance spaces: New York City Center, The Apollo Theater, the 92nd Street Y, and The Merce Cunningham Studio. She has danced in works by Bertram Ross, Paul Taylor, Alvin Ailey, Robert Battle, Milton Myers, Desmond Richardson, Dwight Rhoden, and many more. In 2011, she performed Alvin Ailey’s Memoria with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Her choreography and screendance works have been shown at various venues and festivals nationwide, as well as in Italy and Latvia. In 2016, Boroka founded Re:borN Dance Interactive, a dance company that challenges the conventional audience-dancer relationship by transforming it into an interactive experience, while continuing to explore the interconnectedness of movement and emotions.

Boroka is a certified Horton modern dance teacher, as well as a contemporary dance instructor and choreographer. She believes in using a strong technical foundation to take risks in movement. She urges students to use dance as a way to make deeper connections to their identity and emotions.

She is also a certified Pilates instructor with Dance Specialization, having completed the Body Arts and Science International (BASI) 500-hour certification program under master teachers Karen Clippinger and Rael Isacowitz.
