Gracious, expressive and incredibly beautiful, Mikhail Baryshnikov is a person of interesting and difficult fate. He owns a net worth of $45 million now but that financial freedom is a result of his hard work and right decisions.

Mikhail was born in Riga, Latvia (former Soviet Union). His mother, Aleksandra, was in her second marriage. Being a very tender woman, she sent her son to a ballet school. With his mother’s support Baryshnikov was introduced to the world of art.

Unfortunately, his mother committed a suicide, when the future ballet star was just 11. She was diagnosed with schizophrenia. The boy and his elder half-brother was brought up by his dad, Nikolay Baryshnikov, a military man, who had a very bossy nature.

Mikhail fell in love with dancing; it was his ray of sunshine in the dark. Soon his incredible talent helped Baryshnikov become a ballet star in Soviet Union. He went on tour to USA in 1974 with other soviet dancers and didn’t come back. This bold decision made Mikhail an outcast in his homeland, but a star in freedom-loving USA.

Mikhail Baryshnikov managed to save such a great net worth, working hard as a ballet dancer and choreographer. Later he realized his ambitions of a businessman and opened the Baryshnikov Arts Center in 2005. A lot of successful ballet projects were staged at his center.

Some part of his fortune Baryshnikov earned as a successful Hollywood actor. One of his most prominent roles is Aleksandr Petrovsky in popular series “Sex and the City”.

Mikhail Baryshnikov is a contradictory personality but in any case he is a courageous person and a talented businessman, a self-made millionaire and a bright ballet star.
