  • Short Summary

    Santos Casani and Jose Lennard perform the new fox-trot - some unusual camera techniques.

  • Description

    The "new fox-trot" is demonstrated by Santos Casani and Jose Lennard.

    "Most of us, if asked which dance was the most popular of all, would probably vote for the Fox Trot. (But the new style is somewhat different from the old one, the movements being more flowing.)" L/S of the famous dance teachers demonstrating the dance.

    "Here's a novel view - actually filmed by the dancers themselves. Very odd camera perspective indeed! The camera moves around with the dancers, looking down at Santos' feet - presumably filmed over his shoulder by Jose? We then see Jose's feet filmed over her shoulder. It may be novel, but you can't see the steps very well! We then see some of the steps danced very slowly. The dance is demonstrated a second time.
