Synopsis:

Ballroom Dancing routine " Waltz Classique" 1910's

Two men in dress coat open a central curtain at the back of a stage with palms, gold chairs and plush curtains. A couple enter. He wears tights and a waistcoat and long-sleeved shirt, somewhat ballet style. She is very Isadora Duncan, in a classical almost toga affair and fillet style headband. They twirl then start. It is a fairly bouncy dance, with "down on one knees" and kicks to the side. A few kicks and back ends. Precious little of what we would call a waltz!
