Anna Pavlova, one of the world's best-known ballerinas. In 1892 she entered the Imperial Ballet School, St. Petersburg. By the time of her graduation in 1899 she was recognised by teachers and critics as a phenomenally gifted dancer and was accepted immediately by the Mariinsky Theatre.
From dancing solo roles in her first years, she graduated in 1903 to the title role in Giselle and achieved ballerina status in 1906.

Pavlova toured outside Russia beginning in 1908, sometimes on her own and occasionally appearing with Nijinsky in Diaghilev's Ballet Russe.

She settled in London and purchased Ivy House in 1912, in which she established a dance school. She organised her own dance company and toured throughout the world during the next decade. As a result of these extensive tours, managed by her husband, Victor Dandre, she became the most famous and the wealthiest dancer of her time. Her repertoire included 23 ballets and 80 divertissements.

She was responsible for popularising ballet throughout the world, and in her lifetime Pavlova became a synonym for this art form.
