The film begins with scenes related to the Cherubini circus. In the evenings, the circus people go to a nearby inn that belongs to Rosika's stepfather. She doesn't want to be there for the guests and dance for them, so she leaves the house and seeks shelter with Rux, the circus clown.

Rux has developed a revue act for the circus, which revolves around a solo dancer and rider. The director Cherubini likes that, and there is also a female main character: Rosika. She can dance, but still has to learn to ride. While working with the horses, she meets Geza, who has just been hired as a stable boy. He is courting her, so Rux has to fear losing her for his big circus act. So he gets Geza under a pretext to leave the circus. He makes his way to his brother, and we learn that they are the Hungarian nobles from Raskos. But now Cherubini has fallen in love with Rosika. But when she rejects him, he throws Rux and Rosika out.

The two artists try in vain to get a place with another circus with their new revue number "Leichte Kavallerie". Finally they get an engagement in Budapest. Cherubini and the employees of his circus appear at the premiere, Geza also appears. After the first big performance, Rux talks to Geza and admits that he downplayed Rosika's affection for him at the time so as not to lose her for his program.

A second large dance scene follows, which ends with thunderous applause. Geza rushes to Rosika, there is a happy ending.
