Death: Dec. 2, 2004

Acclaimed Ballet Dancer. Born in London as Lilian Alicia Marks she studied ballet with Seraphima Astafieva, Nicholas Legat, Enricho Cecchetti and Vincenzo Celli. She joined Diaghilev Ballet Russes at just 14 and remained there until Diaghilev's death in 1929. Among the roles she performed were Balanchine's 'Le Rossignol' in 1926 and Bluebird in 'Aurora's Wedding' and many others. She danced with other companies such as Ballet Rambart and more famously with the Royal Ballet then known as Vic-Wells. She became their first Prima Ballerina. She was also the first English dancer to perform 'Giselle,' a role she is mosy fondly remembered for. Organized a company with Anton Dolin (Markova-Dolin Ballet) around 1935.
