An Autobiography

This is a fascinating story about a little Polish girl
who moved so constantly and fluidly her nurse called her
"Quicksilver". She became a dancer, of course...
something had to be done to keep her in one place!

The dancer came to London and began to teach, then
started a small ballet company to give her students
performing experience. Eventually the Ballet Rambert
would tour the world and and the little daughter of
Mercury would become one of the most revered figures
of twentieth-century ballet.
