That’s the dance of a man standing. In the East, it’s called the “Frog dance.”
A boy at a dance?
I think the girls are not so serious. They take their feet and dance about. The boy would not do that.
What language does the Eastern dance speakers use?
There are lots of words in the East, but the best is the language of the dancers. The dance itself is very beautiful — very beautiful. But it makes the dancer very young, because he has no teeth.

Then I saw pictures in the book of Chinese dancers in Los Angeles in 1948. The dances that I remember are the dances of the boys and girls.
