Ninón Sevilla (Emelia Pérez Castellanos, November 10, 1921 – January 1, 2015)[1] was a Cuban-Mexican movie dancer and actress who was active during the "golden age" of Mexican cinema. She was considered one of the greatest Cuban stars and the queen of the 'rumberas' (a style of movie dancing).

She was raised by her aunt. She danced her way through Havana night clubs and cabarets, and arrived in Mexico in 1945.
