• Short Summary

    Finalists in the Broadway Stage Dance Championships show what they can do, plus the new dance of the coming season, 'The Creola'.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Dance doings - on the Great White Way. Meet the Finalists in the Broadway Stage dance Championships."

    New York, United States of America.

    Various shots show dancers (mostly female, but there are a few men there too) strutting their stuff on a sort of garden patio. C/U of a pretty blonde girl in a 30's pantsuit who is waggling her hips like there's no tomorrow - she puts her wrist to her head in "I'm solid gone!" pose. A dance team of three girls with long flowing hair is also seen. The winners of the contest, a boy and girl, are seen doing a frantic tap dance.

    Intertitle reads: "The solo dance of the coming season will, Camille Revel says, be the "Creola" - and here it is."
    C/U of Camille Revel as she introduces the 'Creola', chosen by the Dancing Masters' Association as the new dance of the season. M/S of Camille as she does a Spanish-style dance in a tiered dress.

    Note: first part of story good for showing sex appeal!
