Delicate Dominance, The Hands of Sergei Polunin

Delicate Dominance… Sergei’s hands, strong as steel yet tenderly graceful. Able to propel a ballerina skyward, yet his port de bras is soft beyond compare. Such stunning “carriage of the arms” he looks more like a Da Vinci sculpture than flesh and blood. Yet, he is able to move one to tears with a gesture so exquisitely human, it can break your heart.

About Sergei…

Sergei Polunin is a Ukrainian ballet dancer. Famous for his “once every hundred years” talent, he has incredulous elevation and impeccable technique. From an early age, he displayed glorious dramatic range. Home videos of him as a tiny boy improvising to Pavarotti are very foretelling. At age 20, he became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal dancer.

Ballet gained an unprecedented new awareness when he danced in Hozier’s viral video ”Take Me To Church.” People who never would have never paid any attention to ballet began to watch the tattooed phenom. He is generally attributed with bringing ballet to the modern common man. Classical, yet cutting edge, Sergei starred in Diesel’s “Make Love Not Walls” campaign and has put his mark on many other promotions.

Sergei is a much sought after model and actor. Fashion designers love his breathtaking physique and brooding good looks. He has garnered only positive reviews for his acting. His appearances include Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of the Orient Express, the biographical documentary Dancer, The White Crow, and Red Sparrow.
