Sergei Polunin – A Dancer’s Demons

ImageTruly worth reading is this article by Julie Kavanagh featured in the latest issue of Intelligent Life Magazine.

All of us at The Royal Ballet School and in the ballet world in general were shocked at Sergei’s sudden departure from the Royal Ballet in January this year. I remember sitting in the back row at Sadler’s Wells later that week, watching what may have been his last ever electrifying performance.

Thank goodness that is not the reality, both for Sergei and for us.

  1. Very interesting story. Did he actually leave the Royal Ballet or was it just a ploy to get something he wanted?
