One of the most cherished of ballet dancers, Pavlova was a Russian ballerina in the early part of the 20th century. Credited as the first dancer to partake in a world tour, she is widely known for her Dying Swan dance, which is still admired today. Originally rejected from the Imperial Ballet School because she was too small, her imprint upon the world of ballet is virtually untouchable within the realm of ballerinas.

Besides her beautiful dancing, she revamped the pointe shoe, due to her extremely curved arches. Some accused her of “cheating” the craft; however, anyone who saw Pavlova dance knew that she was simply magical. She died of medical complications in hospital just before her 50th birthday. In addition to being one of the most famous female dancers in history, she was also a generous philanthropist.
