Benjamin Millepied is famed for his choreography and dancing skills. Being a son of a ballerina, he started to train being 8 years old. In 1995-2011, Millepied was a dancer of the New York City Ballet along with choreographing various projects for both NYBC and other companies, including American Ballet Theatre and the Metropolitan Opera.
Benjamin established and became a creative director of LA Dance Project in 2011. In 2014-2016, he held the post of a director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet. Moreover, he runs The Amoveo Company and deals with directing short films.

While being romantically linked to ballerina Isabella Boylston, Benjamin got acquainted with Natalie Portman when he choreographed Black Swan in 2009 and they fell in love. He popped the question in 2010 and espoused his sweetheart on August 4, 2012. It was a Jewish ceremony with a vegan dinner as both Natalie and Benjamin are vegans. At that time, the couple already had their firstborn, son Aleph. In 2017, their daughter Amalia drew her first breath.
