  • Short Summary

    The great dancing teachers demonstrate new steps to brighten up a fox-trot.

  • Description

    "Most Dance Teachers agree that something must be introduced to vary the eternal fox-trot, and why not the Tango?" said Mr Casani." M/S of the Santos Casani and Jose Lennard in the Pathe Studio. The set is dressed to look like a ballroom dancing venue. The steps are demonstrated.

    "A "close-up" shows more clearly the exact footwork" C/U of the feet as they dance. Lower body and feet are shown. "Should you, however, prefer the plain fox-trot, try this bright finish, says Mr Casani. (but not in a crowded ballroom!)" The couple spin around the dance floor very quickly.

    Note: Although Jose's surname is spelt Leonard on the introductory title. I believe that the correct spelling is Lennard.
