Two men do some amazing Cossack / acrobatic dancing in the studio.
No titles. The Pearl Dancers.
Pathe Studio, London.
On a set dressed to look like a drawing room we see a man in the background playing piano while a man in the foreground in a white shirt, floppy tie, cummerbund and trousers does a kind of balletic / Russian or Cossack dance around the floor. He does several very high scissor jumps - very impressive. He dances out of shot.
Another man dressed in a similar costume enters and does more acrobatic / ballet dancing to a more jaunty tune. Amazing stuff - he seems to defy gravity. Lots of Cossack kicking. The other man joins him for a brief finale of synchronised dancing.
Intertitle: 'Slow-motion shows in detail some of the extraordinary steps and leaps.'
Slow-motion footage (mute) shows closer shots of the two men in action. (First shot held out of rack.) Footage is decomposing.
Note: according to old database record the dancers are Myron and Harry Pearl from the Coliseum.
