FREE: A LIFE IN IMAGES AND WORDS by Sergei Polunin (teNeues Verlag £45)

Sergei Polunin, ‘the bad boy of ballet’, became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal dancer aged just 20 but, two years later, in a move which shocked the dance world, he quit. As Polunin details in this autobiography, the controversial star wanted to bring his art to a wider audience. 

This explosive leap (above) is from Giselle, the most gruelling ballet – ‘If you did one more jump, you’d probably die,’ he says. 

His equally gravity-defying Take Me To Church routine has 29 million views on YouTube. Watch it now (thank me later!).
