Program Valencia Skandinaviens fornereste Varieté. og Danse-Palads.
1931 “Program. Valencia Scandinavia’s Finest Variety and Dance Palace”
With a phenomenal trick dancer, a July 1931 program for Copenhagen, Denmark’s “Valencia” dance hall with half tone illustrations of the dancing and other vaudeville-style acts.
The Danish-language program is accompanied by an English/Danish trade card advertising “[t]he largest and most fashionable Night Cabaret in Copenhagen.” The dance hall had 3 musical bands and presented “International performances” until 2 o’clock in the morning.
Acts seen here include phenomenal dance couple (“fænoenalt dansepar”) Teddy & Suzette Caisser, the balancing act Blum & Blum (“ekvilibrister”), and “Garret” the phenomenal trick dancer (“Den fænomenale Trickdanser”). The dance couple Lucy & Harry are shown performing an Arabian-themed exotic dance and Bea & Henry Violanty are shown in two images dressed as a nymph and a faun, respectively.
Other photos show the Overgaards Danish Orchestra (“Overgaards Danske Orkester”), an interior view of the brilliantly illuminated dance hall, and a solo view of dancer Suzette Caisser standing on top of a grand piano, bent over and playing a tune. Remember, entrance to the dance hall ends at midnight!
