May was always number two to Fonteyn, yet she had such a grace and musicality about her dancing that it ensured she had a substantial following in her own right. Indeed she was known as the "connoisseur's prima ballerina".

Pamela May
May 30, 1917 - June 6, 2005
Versatile ballerina noted for a warm femininity who became a pillar of British ballet
From The Times


PAMELA MAY was one of the Royal Ballet’s earliest ballerinas and, second only to her close friend Margot Fonteyn, headed the company during the period when it made its name nationally and internationally. She retired comparatively young from her many big dancing roles, but continued to play an active part in ensuring the future of ballet in Britain.

Pamela May
Glamorous Royal Ballet dancer
by NADINE MEISNER for the Independent

Once in the company she found herself making rapid progress and dancing under a new name. "The Prelude in Sylphides," de Valois declared, "cannot be danced by Doris May." So the unfashionable Doris was changed to Pamela in the printed programme and May was told after the event, which was rather a blow, as she had been toying with Angela or Penelope.
