About Anna Pavlova

Just in case you are wondering, as I have been, why she isn't related to you this will answer that question.

"Anna Pavlovna (Matveyevna) Pavlova was born on February 12, 1881 in Ligovo, Saint Petersburg, Russia to unwed parents. Her mother, Lyubov Feodorovna, was a laundress. Her father's identity is unknown. When she was about three years old her mother married Matvey Pavlov, who adopted her and gave her his surname".

P.S. Students of the Imperial Ballet School in Marius Petipa's Un conte de fées. A ten-year-old Anna Pavlova participated in this work in her first ever ballet performance. She is photographed here on the left holding the birdcage. St. Petersburg, 1891. Seek out the photo in the Media file.

Anna Pavlova Even if you are not a ballet enthusiast, chances are you have heard of Anna Pavlova, the physically tiny Russian ballerina who rocked the world of classical ballet at the turn of the century. After being accepted into the elite Imperial Ballet School, it didn't take her teachers long to realize that her unique style was exceptional and she became an instant hit. It is estimated that she performed over 4,000 times, and started a ballet trend in America as many little girls began to take lessons after seeing her performances. Anna also was instrumental in the design of today's modern pointe shoe and was so passionate about her craft that she actually died while rehearsing for a show in Europe. She became an inspiration to many future ballerinas, and her gumption and drive for the art of dance has long been cherished.
