Anna Pavlova and her pet swan Jack - 1905

Anna Pavlova (1881-1931): the most celebrated, internationally famous dancer of her time and interpreter of "Swan Lake." Born premature, she never became physically strong despite ballet practice, but her fragility and daintiness led her to develop rare qualities of expressiveness, delicacy, and fluidity of movement that enchanted audiences. Photo: with her pet swan Jack.

Anna Pavlova ( February 12 1881 – January 23, 1931) was a Russian ballerina of the late 19th and the early 20th century. She is widely regarded as one of the finest classical ballet dancers in history and was most noted as a principal artist of the Imperial Russian Ballet and the Ballets Russes of Sergei Diaghilev. Pavlova is most recognised for the creation of the role The Dying Swan and, with her own company, became the first ballerina to tour ballet around the world.
