  • Short Summary

    Dance routine is performed in the open air - Paul Dukes, Mme Nicolaeva and Serge Renoff featured.

  • Description

    Sir Paul Dukes, Mme Nicolaeva and Serge Renoff are the dancers featured in this story.

    We see the three of them in a large garden doing headstands. They move their legs around with poise and balance. The "slow camera" is used to analyse the dancers' movements. Mme Nicolaeva does a spin - we see it in slow motion. She then does the splits and her male partner does a turn. The male dancer lifts Mme Nicolaeva and spins her around in the air. Sir Paul Dukes does a handstand, forward and backwards rolls and other fancy stuff. Presumably these dancers are ballet dancers.

    Note: see also "Training Hours." This may have been filmed at Champneys in Tring - it looks like the same location.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 451.
