Anna Pavlova.At the heart of her talent was sudden and instant inspiration. More often than not she was improvising, and could not repeat the pattern of her dances despite requests from her masters and partners. Later, when Anna Pavlova started teaching, this gift seemed to be a great obstacle as her students couldn’t copy the movements that she herself didn’t remember.

Anna Pavlova, Russian ballerina. While touring in The Hague, Pavlova was told that she had pneumonia and required an operation. She was also told that she would never be able to dance again if she went ahead with it. She refused to have the surgery, saying "If I can't dance then I'd rather be dead." She died of pleurisy, three weeks short of her 50th birthday. She was holding her costume from The Dying Swan when she spoke her last words, "Play the last measure very softly."
