'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray – our daintiest dancer – The Preston Herald – Wednesday 3rd April 1912

 

The “Royal” Magazine.

“our daintiest dancer,”

 

The “Royal” Magazine for April is again a capital number. As usual, its chief feature is fiction front rank writers, there being no fewer than nine short stories of a variety to suit all tastes. The articles are all remarkably good. There is a profusely illustrated article on Gabrielle Ray, “our daintiest dancer,” written by one who has had exceptional opportunities of studying Miss Ray both and off the stage. In the article the writer tells of Miss Ray’s personal charm and great talents. Parents will read with interest article entitled “Disappointing Daughters,” in which the writer endeavours to solve the problem of why in so many cases, the daughters of to day lack the nerve and charm, of their mothers. “Mountaineering by Motor” describes how Ben Nevis was climbed by a 20h.p. car, and “Keeping Fit” is a laughable skit on physical culture at home. The number is splendidly illustrated well printed.

Gabrielle Ray – Stage Mermaids – The Royal Magazine – Vol 26 – 1911

 

GABRIELLE RAY

in “Peggy”

 

 

Miss Gabrielle Ray has a big part and trips daintily through it, adorning it with all those attractive small mannerisms that have made her the idol of a large and enthusiastic public.

She has a secret but sincere affection for sticky toffee, and adores dancing with her whole soul. Practising is a pleasure to her, and at home she will turn on a gramophone and dance to it happily for hours.

Miss Ray’s steps have a thistledown lightness that no one surpasses; and she possesses a quaint, childlike charm all her own. And, in addition, her bathing suit is adorable.

Gabrielle Ray – The Royal Magazine, Volume 17, 1906

GABRIELLE RAY

 A Dark-Eyed Beauty.

 

Miss Gabrielle Ray was once asked to write a short story and, distrusting her own powers, went to several clever men of her acquaintance and implored their assistance.

But, though some of them were noted after-dinner story-tellers, they one and all proved the dullest of dogs so far as Miss Ray was concerned.

The end of it was she had to write the story herself.

Miss Ray is a sweet girl, but shy with strangers.

She is tender-hearted, too, and once when some children were taken off the stage by an inspector because they were too young for the law’s requirements, she mingled her tears with theirs.

Gabrielle Ray – The Royal Magazine – March – 1910

Oh, I have seen the sunbeams dance

Upon a sunlit stream,

And caught, by some celestial chance,

A dancing eye’s delicious glance,

And watched the firelight gleam.

Yes, all the three can dance, it’s true,

But none so daintily as you!
