The Vampire and the Ballerina (1960)

United Artists
Directed by Renato Polselli
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Ballerinas at a school in a remote castle are easy prey for vampires seeking their blood to rejuvenate their aging bodies. Authentic sets and expressionistic black and white photography are highlights, but the action stops frequently for extended dance sequences by the leggy dancers in black stockings set to modern jazz, ruining any pretension of mood. The end result is more 60s camp than early Italian horror.
