Polunin was shortlisted as the best male dancer for the 2014 National Dance awards in the U. In 2014 Polunin started his collaboration with the famed American photographer and music director David La Chapelle and took part in his new projects including dancing video "Take Me to Church", music by Hozier presented in February 2015.When you love someone – well, it's the essence of life.
