Alexandrina

Alexandrina, a ballet dancer from France, made her New York debut in 1871 at the Union Square Theatre in "The Hour of the Butterflies." The performer then abandoned classical dance for burlesque, cavorting with the Metropolitan company in parodies such as that of "Divorce" in 1873. In 1877 the dancer formed "Millie Alexandrina's Troupe of Blonde Beauties," appearing at Tony Pastor's theater in New York. Alexandrina wears a maidenly mantilla over her head at the Mora studio.
