became renowned for her remarkable versatility of roles, her bravura footwork, and her onstage charm. After touring South Africa in 1942, she went (1945) to England, where she studied under Dame Marie Rambert. Nerina became prima ballerina of the Sadler's Wells Ballet (now the Royal Ballet) in 1951, excelling in both classical and modern repertoires. She was especially noteworthy as the girlish Lise in La Fille mal gardée, which choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton created for her in 1960. In the U.S.S.R. she appeared as guest artist with the Bolshoi and Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Kirov (now Mariinsky) ballets. Nerina continued with the Royal Ballet as a soloist from 1967 to 1969, when she retired. She remained active in ballet and was a British jury member for the third International Ballet Competition in Moscow in 1977.
