• Short Summary

    Students of a new school of "free dancing" put on a display in the grounds of a palace.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW Something Specially for the Ladies - Feminine Pictorialities No. 30 - Old world dances - And new-world Dancers!"

    Laxenburg (?).

    In the grounds of the former Imperial Summer Palace we see several shots of young ladies in floaty dresses performing in a display of "free dancing" - a new school of dancing, according to commentator. Other girls sitting on the grass play drums as an accompaniment. The second sequence shows the girls in dresses sitting on the grass and swaying this way and that while one woman does a solo dance in the centre. She falls down on the grass at the end.

    Commentator seems quite mystified as to what it all means!

    Note: commentator and paperwork says 'Laxenburg' while old record says 'Luxembourg'.
