There are Buffalo Gals, and Ballet Russe Gals -- they both dance by the light of the moon, but the Ballet Russe Gals do it in long tulle skirts!

Wow...three Russians-(Toumanova, Krassovska, Danilova), one British-(Markova), Austrian-Hungarian Empire-(Slavenska) and Indonesia-(Theilade). Talk about an international "All Stars" troupe...! Posted Image .I can't decide who was more beautiful, Toumanova or Krassovska...

All so lovely, and Danilova fairly jumps off the page...such a strong, commanding presence.

Thank you for sharing this, rg. They are all so beautiful. I just watched Ballets Russes (again) last week so this photo is very welcome. Krassovska, among others, was so endearing in that film.

I showed the pic to my husband - he immediately focused on Toumanova and thought she was, in his words, 'a stunner'.

I agree with your husband, AlbanyGirl. Toumanova is a real beauty. So many photos reveal this. We also have comments from admirers at the time, many of whom were by no stretch of the imagination balletomanes. Posted Image

Danilova certainly knew how to make the most of her photographic opportunities. She knew how to shine for a camera, even in later life, just as she knew how to make an impression when entering a room. Sometimes it seems that she is achieving this by sheer willpower.
