Boris Mikhaylovich Moiseev (Russian: Бори́с Миха́йлович Моисе́ев; born March 4, 1954, Mogilev, Byelorussian SSR, Soviet Union) is a Jewish Russian singer, choreographer, dancer, writer, actor, head of dance group and author of popular shows in Russia. Meritorious Artist of Russia (2006).


Boris Moiseev was born in prison, his mother was being held as a disenfranchised element during the communist regime. He spent his childhood and teenage years among his Jewish aunts in Mogilev. To strengthen his health, Boris was sent to a dancing school. Since then dancing took over all his interests and turned into a lifetime passion. He dropped out of the school, packed his bags and ran away to Minsk. There Boris got accepted to a choreography school and became a professional classical dancer.

Career beginning

Boris had all the skills to succeed as a classical dancer on the stage but he preferred modern dance. After his graduation Moiseev was expelled from Minsk because of his very open, for that time, ways of self-expression. He moved to Kharkiv where Moiseev became a ballet teacher but in 1975 he was expelled from Komsomol and left Kharkiv for Kaunas. He became a head of the Lithuanian dance group Trimitas. In 1978 Moiseev created famous dancing trio Ekspressiya which became a part of Alla Pugacheva's studio. In 1987 the trio quit working with Pugacheva and went on tours to the USA, Italy, and France. The trio has existed and for a very long time. In addition Moiseev was invited to work as a ballet teacher for many American shows.

Return to Russia

Moiseev came back to Russia in 1991, filming a documentary on Ekspressia.
