Dancer (2016, UK/Russia/Ukraine/USA) Cert. 12A

Director: Steven Cantor
Features: Sergei Polunin, Jade Hale-Christofi

This web-page is a work in progress.  More content will be added in the next few days

The focus of his family’s ambitions from a young age, Sergei Polunin moved from Ukraine to the Royal Ballet school at 13, and became the company’s youngest-ever principal dancer at 19.

But at 22 he walked away from the company, isolated in his personal life and feeling constrained by the routine.

Through interviews with Polunin and his family, and footage from throughout his remarkable life, Dancer explores what drives this troubled and brilliantly talented young man.


At the time of first publication of this page Dancer had not been released in the UK, so here is – not so much a Review, more a discussion of the film and it’s implications – from The Guardian


That Guardian article includes a link to the “official” trailer and much, much more on Polunin and the film.  That Trailer can also be seen below – [fvplayer src=””]
