Nadia Nerina (1927-2008) was a South African ballerina. She moved to England and joined the Sadler's Wells Theatre Ballet, where she became a prima ballerina at the age of 25. She was one of the first western dancers to appear with the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow during the Cold War. She retired in 1969 and died in 2008 at her home in France.

Alexis Rassine (1919-1992) was born in Lithuania. He trained in London, where he joined the Anglo-Polish Ballet and then the Sadler's Wells Ballet, becoming the regular partner of Nerina.
