One of the world's cleverest dancers, Mdlle. Adeline Genee, who, in June, 1910, became the wife of Mr. Frank Isitt, manager of the Duke of Newcastle's estates, and an enthusiastic musician and composer, was born at a tiny town in Denmark, Aartrus, on January 6, 1873. Her uncle. M. Alexander Genee, was her first teacher and she made her debut at the principal theatre at Copenhagen before she was seventeen.

After dancing in Berlin and Munich, she was engaged as premiere danseuse at the Empire, London, in November. 1897, and remained there for ten years, winning the reputation of being the world's most graceful and accomplished dancer of the old Italian school. It was Mr. George Edwardes who said: " She is without doubt the finest dancer on the European stage." In addition, Mdlle. Genee is a clever actress, for she possesses the ability to express emotion in dumb show so that it conveys even more than the spoken word. But her success has meant strenuous work, and the famous dancer has herself told of the hours of rehearsing that are necessary before even a born dancer can claim to be successful.
