One of the most famous Russian ballet dancers (born in Latvia while it was part of the Soviet Union), Baryshnikov‘s dancing is complex and captivating. Heralded as one of the 20th century’s greatest ballet dancers, he started dancing in Leningrad, but later moved to Canada in 1974. From Canada, he made his final move to the United States, where he began working with the American Ballet Theatre and New York City Ballet as both a dancer and choreographer.

He has also enjoyed great success as an actor on both stage and screen, as well as an influential modern dancer, consistently producing new works. He founded the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City in 2005.
