Who is Sergei Polunin?

Sergei is an Ukrainian ballet dancer and model, who has been dancing and traveling the world since the age of 4. When he was 20 years old, Polunin became the British Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal only to announced his resignation from the company two years later with the words “the artist in me was dying.” He started freelancing as principal dancer and guest artist at ballet companies all over the world.

His worldwide fame came through his collaboration with Hozier’s music video. “Take me to Church” was directed by David LaChapelle and seen as one of his masterpieces. A year later his life story became the subject of the feature film ‘Dancer’.  His youth, ballet training and international fame are followed and analyzed, giving you an intimate look into his life.
