  • Description

    A "dance poem" by Miss Kathleen Dorian.

    A mother and daughter in ballet tutus pick flowers on a riverbank. The mother teaches the daughter some ballet steps in a clearing. The little girl points her legs and dances around copying her mother. They do pirouettes and prance around. More shots of the two dancing, this time it looks like nightfall - low light.

    The little girl is called Joan and she "betrayed a little Jazz influence" when she did a little solo routine. Her mother sits on the grass and watches whilst she goes through her paces. When her routine has ended she performs a wobbly curtsey. End shot shows mother holding daughter in her arms. Mother kisses daughter and they smile at the camera.

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 264.

    Safety print exists.
