Did You Know?


Sergei did not want to watch the documentary because he doesn't like watching himself dance and was tricked into seeing it by his good friend who filmed him in "take me to church". He found that it had good rhythm and nice music, although he was grasping his friend's knee throughout the projection. See more »

Took my breath away
7 May 2018 | by shepyanksSee all my reviews

I happen to love dance of all types (big on ballet) which peaked my interest with it being THE Sergei. Best dancer in history, hands down. This is a movie, however, for everyone, not just dancers. I do think those who aren't 'into' dance will be after seeing this doc!

This was one of the most interesting and beautiful documentaries I have seen, and I have viewed a lot of them. The movie was fresh throughout, whereas some docs either start fresh and interesting then become a total yawnfest and stale by the middle.

Sergei's story is remarkable, impressive, one to be shared over and over and over again. He is an icon and legend for his fierce, artistic, poetic, athletic dance first and foremost, but to see where it all started is fantastic.

The final dance literally took my breath away.
