Anna Pavlova
Birth: Jan. 31, 1881
Death: Jan. 23, 1931

Ballerina. Studied at the Imperial Ballet School with Marius Petipa. At seventeen she made her debut and by 1906 she had become a principal ballerina. On her second foreign tour she joined Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. She created and made famous the solo The Dying Swan. In 1921 she bought Ivy House in England and opened her own School of Dance. She made her last Russian appearance a year later. From then on she spent the rest of her career almost constantly on tour bringing ballet to millions for the first time through the drawing power of her legendary name. It is said that her last words were "Bring me my Swan costume." (bio by: Medora)
