Mrs. Cockburn, of York, announced in 1822 that dance would be included in her school's curriculum. Over the next century, dance evolved through an array of styles ranging from fancy dress balls, to physical culture, to ballet and the beginnings of modernism. Like other cities, dance in Toronto had its exponents and was highly respected until the fin de siècle when rag time and vaudeville emerged. Pavlova returned dance to respectability. After the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, Canada got its share of Russian dancers/teachers who greatly influenced the ballet profession.

Torontonians became fascinated with Russian ballet because of the numerous visits of Anna Pavlova to the city between 1910 and 1924. Three Russian dancers settled in the city during the 1920s, and these three men, Leon Leonidoff, Dimitri Vladimiroff and Boris Volkoff, had a profound impact on dance training in Toronto. Previously, dance had been closely related to physical culture, which was taught in several dance studios and at the Margaret Eaton School of Literature and Expression. This paper examines the influence of these three teachers on the growth of ballet in Toronto in the 1920s and 1930s.
