  • Short Summary

    Elegant dance routine performed by girls in flimsy frocks - Ancient Greek style movements.

  • Description

    "Dancing is the poetry of motion - especially when allied to the grace of old-time rhythm."

    An elegant dance routine is performed in the gardens of a large country house. The female dancers all wear flimsy see-through floaty dresses. There is much waving of the arms and pointing of the toes. They have bare feet.

    "The Greek taught the old world dancing, and the charm of its dainty style will live for ever." Ancient Greek style dancing ensues. Various shots of the girls leaping and prancing around. Most of the dance is seen from the balcony of the house looking down onto the garden. Closer shot of the girls dancing in a group then bending down to the ground. They strike an end pose with their arms outstretched.
