Galina Ulanova

born January 8, 1910

galina sergeyevna ulanova was a great ballerina.

The number of people who wrote, spoke, and cried out these words is beyond count. She was called a goddess, a visitor from some other world. She was showered with flowers and was the subject of poetry and films. There were people who so revered her that they washed the floors in their homes before watching her perform on the television. Her first performances abroad, in London, occasioned wild ovations and crowds of fans, and all this when the ballerina was already 46, not exactly a suitable age to be performing classical ballet.
