Vaslav Nijinsky was a Russian ballet dancer and choreographer, considered as the greatest male dancer of the 20th century. His expertise and technical perfection earned him popularity and respect within a short career span of nine years. He was among the few male dancers who could perfectly execute the’ en pointe’ technique, which was considered rare in those times. Born into a family of celebrated dancers, he along with his siblings was trained in ballet from a young age. His skill was noticed from childhood, and he was given opportunities to perform with various productions even while pursuing his studies. After completing his graduation from the reputed Imperial Ballet School, Vaslav Nijinsky went on to work with Mariinsky Theatre. However, very soon he met Sergei Diaghilev and became part of his company, the Ballets Russes. Though he initially performed as a lead in performances, he later attempted to choreograph ballet acts by incorporating modern trends. His career was shortened due to his mental instability, diagnosis of schizophrenia and associated travel difficulties. He was admitted to asylum several times between 1919 and 1950.
