Nina Vyroubova
Birth: Jun. 4, 1921
Death: Jun. 24, 2007

Ballerina. French dancer considered to be one of the finest ballerinas of the 20th Century. Born in Gurzuf, in the Crimea, she came to France at age three with her mother to escape the Russian Revolution and studied with émigré Russian ballerinas who had also relocated to Paris. Her first leading role came at age 16, when she played Swanilda in "Coppélia" at Caen. She was well-known for her ability to fit into almost any style while imparting her personal interpretations. Equally successful illuminating great classic roles and nurturing and supporting new modern ballets, she evolved into a romantic ballerina with the intensity and temperament of the Russian ballet. Later was a skilled and generous teacher in various Paris venues and at her own studio. (bio by: Fred Beisser)
