Ballet Russes Quainat Zaman She climbed the trees swiftly, but one day her mother dragged her to ballet classes and although at first it was not interesting, it became more challenging and that was what made the baby ballerina, Irina Baronva fall in love with this art. Tatiana Riabouchinska had the agility of a feather and one could not hear her footsteps touch the ground, a feat of being a baby ballerina. Tamara Toumonova was the mysterious baby ballerina of ballet and her mystique struck Russia with an impact. The young baby ballerinas were expected to be callow because of their age, however, the trio of baby ballerinas took everyone by surprise as they strut the product of endless hours of practice with George Balanchine on stage and allowed spectators to fall in love with them, by becoming a part of the Ballet Russes. The baby ballerinas were revolutionary not necessarily in technique, but revolutionary in age because it was not considered normal for young teenagers to perform at that developing age as well as for any ballerina to take the stage in New York.
