    Women (including Hermione Darnborough) wear floaty chiffon gowns and dance in a garden.

  • Description

    "Grace and rhythm in every movement - the joy of life in every leap - "

    Six girls do a very graceful dance wearing floaty gowns and holding large balls or balloons aloft as they dance. Very "health and fitness for beauty" stylised movements. They are dancing in the garden of a large house or in a park. They run towards the camera doing balletic leaps. "Dancing and prancing to the pipes of pan - as merry as the days when we were young - " A young "Puck" like character sits in the foreground playing pan pipes. Someone in a rabbit's costume sits beside him. Perhaps a scene from Midsummer Night's Dream?

    Girls dance in the background as others sit on steps in the distance. C/U of three nymph like beauties. They have flowers in their hair. M/S of group of the girls - some are young teenagers - siting on the grass holding their balloons and smiling. Hermione Darnborough dances for the camera - balletic pirouettes as the others look on. C/U of one of the girls with flowers in her hair. Hermione dances towards the camera.
