  • Short Summary

    Exhibition dancing by Dick and Edith Barstow - they do some impressive tiptoe dancing.

  • Description

    Dick and Edith Barstow, the tiptoe dancers perform an impressive routine.

    C/U of Eric's feet in ballet shoes standing on points on the top of a piano. Dissolve to M/S of him on top of the piano. He jumps off and lands on his points and bounces around a bit. He does Cossack style dancing all the time balancing on his toes. C/U of his feet as he bounces around on his points.

    Edith joins him for some tiptoe dancing. C/U of Edith's feet as she jumps up and down landing on her toes. We see her do these jumps in slow motion. We also see Dick jumping in slow motion. More acrobatic and showy dancing, all on points.
