Passionate and ferociously-talented, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm when he became the youngest principal dancer to join the Royal Ballet. However, tortured by a rigorous lifestyle and driven to the brink of self-destruction, Polunin abandoned the academy at 25, his talent more of a burden than a gift. Determined to prove himself to the world, this urban rebel/airborne angel made ballet go viral! With his famous 2015 collaboration with Dave LaChapelle, Sergei transcended all notions of ballet, all the while secretly fighting to maintain his sense of self.
