Annabelle originally joined George Balanchine's first American Ballet  in 1935!  She later joined  Ballet Theater (which is better known today as American Ballet Theater).  She was the fist dancer to ever perform the role of "Giselle".  
After her career in Ballet Theater she danced on broadway from about 1945-1947!  She was a true professional who's work covered several different styles.  
She is survived by her son.  Her graceful performances will live on in the hearts of little ballerinas everywhere.
