Ballet artist.

She was acclaimed for three decades as the "Pearl of the Ballet." She was a leading dancer with the pre-Communist Russian Imperial Ballet and a pioneer of modern Russian dance techniques in the US. She was married to Michel Fokina, one of the century's best known choreographers. She performed lead roles in the dances created by her husband and appeared with him in major dance centers in Europe. They came to the US in 1919 and formed their own ballet company which played at theatres, stadiums an parks across the country. (bio by TLS).
