According to this, there is, as you say, not much correctly
remembered. If there was any time at all for dancing with success
in Paris, there might be at least some notes in the newspapers.
She says they had to go home because of her fathers death in may.
There is a book "My husband" from 1918, I haven´t seen.
But perhaps she does not mention the Paris time there.
Besides she was only 18 at that time, born april -93.
