If you ever ask French people about Yvette Chauviré, they will tell you that she is France’s greatest ballerina ever lived. It is hard not to agree with them as Yvette’s brilliant ballet career spanned from 1937 to 1972. She was born in Paris in 1917 and celebrated her 90th birthday in 2007. For many years she was a true ballet start and prima ballerina at the Paris Opera Ballet. When she retired from dancing Yvette became its artistic director. Through her teaching new talented ballerinas are dancing in Paris Opera Ballet. Among them prima ballerina Sylvie Gulliem – one of the most prominent figures in the history of ballet.
