SARATOGA SPRINGS – The National Museum of Dance will host a screening of the documentary, Dancer. This film tells the story of Sergei Polunin, the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever Principal Dancer. Plagued with self-destruction because of his stardom, Polunin walked away from his career, just a few years later, during its peak. Steven Cantor’s Dancer examines the life of this immense talent, from his beginnings in the Ukraine to his performances all over the world, including his work in Hozier’s Take Me to Church music video, all while considering how wealth and success may not always be what one needs to find personal and professional identity and happiness.
The screening will take place Friday, April 21st at 7 pm at the Mr. and Mrs. Ronald A. Riggi Theater. This screening is free and open to the public. For more information and to make a reservation please call 518-584-2225 x3001. Seating is limited.
