    Tips on correct dancing style by Dinah (?) Harris and Ted Trevor.

  • Description

    Hints on dance steps by Miss Dina Harris and Mr Ted Trevor of the Embassy Club. (Possibly a part missing here)

    First intertitle "But, when you do dance, Adam, don't please, hold your partner with one hand reaching for the stars - " The couple dance and Ted holds his hand way up high. Another shot of the couple show them with their hands way down low. This is also frowned upon. "On the other hand, Eve, having secured your partner, don't show the world by hanging round his neck." They hold each other very close.

    Nor, try this affectation - " Dina sticks her elbow high in the air and the back of her hand against her partner's shoulder. "Yet, all the foregoing errors may constantly be seen. Here is the correct way - " They dance together in an elegant fashion. C/U of their hands to show the correct grip. They then demonstrate the "Trevor Trot" which an intertitle declares to be "the latest West End fancy - " the dance involves some elaborate footwork.

    Note: on other Eve Pics which feature this couple the spelling of the female dancer's name has been Dinah, but on front title of this story it is spelt Dina - probably a mistake.
