The historical figures that I have chosen to research are Anna Pavlova and Doris Humphry. My research over this past summer has influenced me to choose these two women who both started from humble means and rose up to become pioneers in their respective fields. Both Humphry and Pavlova came from humble beginnings but felt an undeniable pull towards dance and made vast strides in their field. Anna Pavlova, a Russian born ballerina came from poverty and became one of the biggest faces of ballet as it is known today. She was born to unmarried laundress Lyubov Feodorovna in St. Petersburg, Russia, and was formally adopted by her stepfather, Matvey Pavlo.

“Two sets of 3 plie`s and 4 tondus,” “Five six seven eight,” can be heard from my dance teacher on a typical Monday night in advanced ballet. I’m out of breath, nauseous and sweating up a storm, but continue to run for my water to pour the icy cold liquid down my scratchy throat after an intense ballet-conditioning class. The clock ticks and before I know it four hours of dance passes by. If I’m not at school, I can most likely be found at my dance studio, Spotlight Dance Academy. Some people assume that I have been dancing here my whole life because of my connection to the girls and my improvement over the years, but truthfully I started dancing at Spotlight when I was in fifth grade.
I like to believe that this knowledge shaped who I am today. It has helped me better understand myself and showed me that there’s other ways of communication and learning rather than sitting in a classroom. It has made me more open minded to learning and has made me appreciate my culture and ability to learn even more. Learning and practicing has given me motivation in other parts of my life as well. Dance is medicine.
Dance is a language, a way of communicating and knowing, through body movements by the use of time, space and force. Dance is the only language that visually allows the audience to feel and understand a situation. Dancers express themselves in different dance forms. In modern dance the dancer allows his/her emotions to express their feelings about a situation.

In the 1940s, it was unusual for a 16-year-old girl to move from her home in Hillburn, New York to New York City, where she studied ballet at the School of American Ballet on Madison Avenue, George Balanchine’s troupe.

One time, Aunt Nora found herself seated next to Judy Garland, who said to Nora, “I have seen your work.”

“Don’t be nervous.” This was the last thing my mom said to me before I entered my first audition for a ballet summer intensive. I was eleven. I did ok and I ended up getting in but like always there were things to improve on. Little did I know then that the teachers are always looking for three things; technique, confidence, and artistry. The audition was for Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory.
One day, my theater group was holding auditions for the Ugly Duckling. When I walked on stage in front of the judges, my heart was pounding in my ears and my hands were trembling. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and delivered the monologue I had prepared. When I was finished, I felt instant relief, although I was not very optimistic about getting the part I had tried out for. However, the next week, when I came to my theater group, I looked up at the audition board and was shocked.
