    'Baby Ballerina' of the 1930s ballet Russe de Monte Carlo

    She eloped at 17 with an older man whom she later divorced.
    At 27, she retired at the request of second husband English theatrical agent Cecil Tennant.
    After Cecil's death in 1967, she reignited her relationship with her first husband.
    She was Steve Martin's former mother-in-law.
    Noted for her beauty and inimitable technique, she was said to be the most graceful of the Baby Ballerinas.
    While dancing in Balanchine's 1931 staging of 'Orpheus in the Underworld,' a critic proclaimed, 'The sensation of the evening was the tiny child Baronova, who went through the final galop like a whirlwind.'
