Sergei Polunin doc "Dancer" release dates -Updated with UK & Canadian Dates


Dancer


From his earliest years, Ukrainian Sergei Polunin was destined to be one of the top ballet dancers of his generation. His family sacrificed much to further his career: his grandmother moved to Greece to be a caregiver, and his father went to Portugal for work. At 13, he was accepted into the Royal Ballet School in London, necessitating a move from his home and family. At 19, he was named the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal; and at 25, he walked away from ballet, driven by pressure to the brink of self-destruction. 
Steven Cantor’s DANCER explores the reasons for this defection, and illustrates Polunin’s skills with clips from his groundbreaking performance set to Hozier’s “Take Me To Church”, which had more than 14 million views on YouTube. The documentary features Polunin, his family and friends, and shows the effects that extraordinary fame can have on a person and the people who surround him.

2014 : 'CHÉRI' DE ROLAND PETIT, DANSÉ PAR MATHIEU GANIO ET ISABELLE CIARAVOLA
Beautiful pas de deux from Roland Petit's Chéri with Isabelle Ciaravola and Mathieu Ganio
Bolshoi Sleeping Beauty & Swan Lake
The Bolshoi will be streaming their Sleeping Beauty live to cinemas around the world on January 22. In Canada, Cineplex theatres will be showing the ballet starting at 1255 pm.

A repeat of the Bolshoi's Swan Lake  (a pretty vile production in my opinion), starring Svetlana Zakharova (Odette/Odile) and Denis Rodkin (Prince Siegfried), will be broadcast in most countries on February 5 and in Cineplex theatres in Canada on Sunday February 12 at 1255.

To find a Cineplex showing the Bolshoi near you, click here and fill in the name of your city and the name of the ballet.

Sergei Polunin doc Canadian dates

Dancer Official Trailer 1 (2016) - Sergei Polunin Documentary
DANCER will premiere on Cineplex Events screens in Canada on February 10, 2017. Locations below. For those of you not near a Cineplex, the film is also now available on DVD from amazon.

Free livestream of The Snow Queen from Finnish National Ballet

Lumikuningatar / The Snow Queen (Suomen Kansallisbaletti / Finnish National Ballet) HD
This ballet is a kind of Nutcracker substitute, with much more dancing in the second act than in the first. A narrator is part of the cast, so there is quite a bit of talking (in Finnish, naturally). You probably need to read the synopsis here to understand what's going on.
