Rudolf Nureyev, a Russian ballet dancer, who was known as one of the most famous dancers during the 60’s and 70’s. He started his ballet when he was only six years old. At a young age, he knew that he wanted ballet though his father tried hard to discourage him. At age 17, he studied at Leningrad Choreographic School. His teacher, Alexander Pushkin, had soon noticed his ballet moves and he was soon invited to live in his house. Afterwards, he flew to Paris and studied at Grand Ballet du Marquis de Cuevas. There he met Margot Fonteyn and they became dance partner for several years. Nureyev’s final stage appearance was at the Palace Garner where he performed this most popular ballet “the La Bavadere.”
