4  She sings in surrounding skirts
#5  Check out the steel hoop near the end!
#6  (Spanish) Lots of petti-ed skirts in this dance scene
#7  Would be devastating if we saw it in color, but the red DOES manifest itself anyway!

#8   Full movie

BB Bloomer:

"Further to the death (January 7th) of the famous French singer France Gall, who won the Grand Prix de l'Eurovision in 1965
with the song 'Poupée de cire, poupée de son', here is a video clip of the French singer, Jennifer, who sings the same song in tutu!"

ED: Unfortunately, it appears this is not available in the US

'Caporales'. They seem to be carnival dances very popular in South America. Girls will wear 'Mini Polleras', a kind of short bouffant twirling skirt or dress, rather sensual!  Here are some fine examples.   #2   #3
