Alicia Markova is a dancing legend. Her story is a dream come true, but not one realized without much hardship, dedication and sacrifice. The child star, Lilian Alicia Marks, as she was christened, was discovered by Diaghileff and toured throughout Europe in the acclaimed Ballet Russe. Later, aged nineteen, she returned to London penniless and in despair. It was only when the Vic-Wells ballet was formed that she became ballerina and put British ballet on the map.
