Religious principles served as a unifying force in her spiritual life. Pavlova was a Russian Orthodox. Her associates averred that she was a deeply religious woman; frequently they observed her making the Sign of the Cross before performances. She gave generously to charities and down-and-out dancers. All the flowers she received were sent to hospitals and the proceeds from the sales of her photographs went to support her private charity, "Home for Russian Children in Paris."
