  • Short Summary

    Ballet dancers in odd situations - dancing on high rooftops and holding baby lions.

  • Description

    "For those who don't like the floor - try the roof..."

    C/U of a girl's legs and ankles and she dances on points on the edge of a roof. It looks pretty precarious - ballet dancing for those not afraid of heights. Other legs follow the first lot! We then see full length shots of the girls as they shuffle along on tiptoe on what looks like an American high rise building or skyscraper. High angle shot of a ballet dancer dancing on the corner of a high building - traffic visible below. She lifts her leg in the air and poses.

    We then see a little "jungle jazz". M/S of heavily made up women holding baby lions they are presumably dancers as they wear ballet style tutus and flowers in their hair. The girls dance holding the lions. Highly bizarre!

    We then see a long shot of ballet dancers seen through an archway dancing. They dance towards the camera and through the archway.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 504.
