  • Description

    Titles read: "DANCE, GYPSY, DANCE!"

    New York, United States of America.

    Good shot of a New York street in a poor district of the city; people walk along. Camera tilts up from another shot of the street to show a group of large group of gypsies standing on a fire escape and waving. We then see a bigger crowd of gypsies standing on the roof and fire escape of a tenement building, watching a gypsy girl dance to traditional music. A large man does his own little jig in a corner. Several good shots of gypsies clapping, singing and moving to the music. An older woman smoking a pipe shimmies her shoulders.
