Former principal dancer of American Ballet Theatre, Maxim Beloserkovsky received his dance training at the Kiev Ballet Institute.In 1990 he danced as a leading soloist with the National Opera of Bulgaria where he remained for one year. From 1991 to 1994, he was a principal dancer with the National Opera Ballet of the Ukraine, and toured with them to numerous countries, including France, Germany, Spain, Hungary, Egypt, Japan, Mexico, Canada and the U.S. He performed most of the major roles in the classical repertory: the Prince and Bluebird in The Sleeping Beauty; Prince Siegfried and the Pas de Trois in Swan Lake; Albrecht in Giselle; Ferhad in Legend of Love; and the Pas de Deux from Le Corsaire, Don Quixote, and La Sylphide. In 1993, Beloserkovsky was honored by the President of the Ukraine for outstanding artistic achievement.

Joining American Ballet Theatre in 1994, Beloserkovsky was made a soloist in 1995 and was appointed principal dancer in 2000, following a brilliant season in which he was repeatedly cited for his superior artistry, "(adding) virtuosity to his pure classical style." (The New York Times.) His performance as Basilio in Don Quixote was a triumph: "The last Don Quixote of the season ... had (partner and wife) Irina Dvorovenko and Beloserkovsky in a stunning display of integrated artistry and technique, a truly flawless and exciting performance." (Kisselgoff, The New York Times.)  Ms. Kisselgoff's review of his 1999 Don Quixote hailed his performance as "perfect, and danced in sublime harmony and with breathtaking stylistic unity."

Beloserkovsky's Siegfried in Ballet Theatre's new Swan Lake also brought critical acclaim: "To see Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky step into the leading roles of Swan Lake was to see two outstanding dancers outdo themselves and enhance a 19th century classic with a splendid and mature performance. It is up to the principals to bring depth to the plot through their dancing. This is what Dvorovenko and Beloserkovsky did with unusual technical polish." (The New York Times) Jennifer Dunning, reviewing Etudes for The New York Times, cited Beloserkovsky for his "forceful Russian-style attack, mixed here, characteristically, with a winning clarity of line and shape."

Beloserkovsky has appeared as a guest artist with numerous companies, including the Hamburg Ballet, the Finnish Ballet, the Rome Opera Ballet, Verona Ballet, the Universal Ballet, and with Stars of the Bolshoi Ballet, and has been a guest with Asami Maki and at the National Theater in Tokyo. He has also appeared in several videos and television arts programs, including the PBS broadcast of the opening of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, partnering his wife, ABT principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko, in the Swan Lake Act II Pas de Deux. He has been featured on the cover of Dance Magazine, Japanese Dance Magazine, New York Dance Fax and Pointe as well as in articles in People, Dancing Times, Dance Review, and Gotham. He retired from the ABT stage in the spring of 2012.
