Well, the original question was about TODAY'S humble ballerinas, but as everyone else seems to have gone well back of today, I'd like to add:

Margot Fonteyn, Margot Fonteyn, Margot Fonteyn!

You couldn't get more humble than she. When we were doing the get-in for the Nureyev and Friends gala we had to cancel a planned rehearsal. Somehow Fonteyn didn't get the message and turned up at the theatre. SHE apologized to US and said she hoped we didn't mind if she did a barre on the stage. She held onto the proscenium for support and made sure all the stage hand knew that they could ask her to move if necessary.
