Imagine - Winter 2007/2008 - Henry Perkins: Bolshoi Boy


At 15 years old, Henry Perkins is one of the most promising young ballet dancers in Britain. Last year he gave up life with his family in Hampshire to begin four years training at the The Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, widely regarded as the best ballet school in the world. Only the second ever British boy to win a place at the academy in its illustrious 230 year history, Alan Yentob presents a gritty and challenging portrait of Henry's life during his first gruelling year at the school, 1500 miles from home.
