Pavlova, the famous Russian dancer, was born in St. Petersburg and studied at the Imperial Ballet School there. She toured America for the first time in 1910, by which date she had formed her own company, choosing as her first partner the brilliant Mikhail Mordkin who was succeeded by Adolph Bolm and others. Her most famous role was "The Dying Swan," choreographed for her by Michel Fokine.
