  • Description

    Three contrasting styles of dance.

    Group of people dressed in exotic costumes walk down the stone steps of a large stately home type garden. "Dacia" performs an "exotic Eastern Dance" surrounded by a troupe dressed in an elaborate "Eastern" style. She dances in front of an ornamental pond.

    The second dance is a Western dance of "joyous youthful abandon" performed by a group of women dressed in simple tunics. They seem to be in the same place as Dacia. They are dancing a traditional "back to nature" sort of dance in bare feet.

    The last dance is a "whirly West-End Waltz" by the exhibition dancers Ted Trevor and Dinah Harris. They are dancing in a studio.
