The world describes him as "the James Dean of the ballet world", "a theatre animal with an extraordinary natural sense of belonging on the stage", "the most naturally gifted male ballet dancer of his generation", "one of the dance world’s hottest young stars". Originally from Ukraine, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm. He became The Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. He also made ballet go viral when he danced in the clip "Take Me to Church" directed specially for him by David LaChapelle. But virtuosity comes with a high price. He admits he sometimes went on stage under the influence of cocaine. He used various substances. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away citing burnout as the reason. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet’s "hottest property"?
