  • Short Summary

    An acrobatic exhibition dance is performed by Tracey and Hay.

  • Description

    No title. Paper records state that this act is "Tracey and Hay". An exhibition dance is performed in the Pathe studio. It is an acrobatic routine with lots of lifts, spins, posturing etc. The woman wears ballet shoes and dances on points.

    "Moments of tense muscular strain - yet perfect in their balance -" The man holds the woman by her ankles against his chest and he films her bending over backwards. We see this from above - unusual camera angle. At the end of the dance the woman is lifted up high and the man walks offstage carrying her off.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 565.
