Pierre Vladimiroff, or Pyotr Nikolayevich Vladimirov (Russian: Пётр Николаевич Владимиров; born February 13, 1893 in Gatchina, Saint Petersburg Governorate, Russian Empire – died November 25, 1970 in New York City, United States), was a Russian dancer and teacher.
In 1920, he and his later wife Felia Doubrovska emigrated to the West,[where?] where they joined the Ballets Russes; all roles of Vaslav Nijinsky went to Pierre Vladimiroff (Nijinsky left the Diaghilev company in 1917). He danced the prince in the 1921 production The Sleeping Princess. Later, he danced with the Mordkin Ballet and joined Anna Pavlova's company on Pavlova's last tour, becoming her last partner.
