DANCER is a British documentary about Sergei Polunin, a Ukranian ballet dancer who gives up his career at the peak of his success.

Drugs

There are several references to cocaine use in newspaper headlines, and in a clip from an interview where Polunin is asked, "You danced on drugs after taking cocaine and you said you danced better?". He appears to agree, replying "You don't feel pain," but then does not answer when the interviewer asks whether he still does this.

Nudity

Joking around with friends, Polunin strips naked and lies face down outside in the snow. There is brief buttock nudity and sight of pubic hair in a non-sexual context.

There is mild bad language ('eff off', 'pissed off').
