My Current Minor Obsession

My current minor obsession is a gorgeous, heavily tattooed, incredibly talented Ukrainian ballet dancer, Sergei Polunin.  You may know him from the Hozier video, “Take Me To Church.”  For fun I meddle about on the computer and lately I’ve created a few videos starring my “Sergei.”  One of them has over 55,000 hits.  I am not alone in my obsession…

Here is my latest endeavor.

Penelope Jane & Sergei “Ponoonin” Polunin

My 4 year old niece Penelope Jane vows one day to marry Sergei Polunin, the “man who dances in the church.” Until then, she’s happy just to dance like he does and watch the “Ponoonin” video every day. Every. Single. Day.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year, you’ve seen the incredible, gorgeous, heavily tattooed ballet dancer, Sergei Polunin, perform in a church-like, barn-like setting to “Take Me To Church” by Hozier.  Well, the proclaimed “bad boy of ballet” is her “Ponoonin.”

So, here I present to you, an original Penelope Jane performance, inspired by Sergei Polunin.
