Unconfirmed Sighting

Here's an item that's not yet ascertained as being in a Lost Cinema--but it seems very likely:  labeled as "The Derby Show '36", with the tag line "We're in the Money" from the popular song of the same name, these 3 couples are shown on the boards of...what?  It appears to be backstage somewhere, but it's very hard to tell from the out-of-focus, tentlike setup in the background.  And the outfits suggest...dancing?  Acrobatics?  What?  I have no idea, and can't find any record on the internet of what the Derby Show may have been.  (If anyone has any clues, please write!)

According to the back of the photo, the couples are:  Dimples and Chet Naylor, Adele Keller and Bobby Bloom, Edith Fowler and Earl Clark.
