• Short Summary

    Young girl sings a flirtatious song - dancing and acrobatics are part of her act.

  • Description

    Sonia Staples is a precocious child performer who sings a song and poses.

    Sonia sings in a very posh voice and wears a glittery costume and hat with large feathers. She sings a flirtatious song about someone who is "tall and dark and handsome." I suppose that she could be considered quite cute.

    She does a funny little dance at the end of her song with some high kicks and a bit of posturing. C/U of her legs as she dances. Cartwheels and handstands, walking in a "crab", walking on her hands all form part of her act.
