With all the doom and gloom which preceded the 1930's, the dancing just got bolder and better. The Samba, Congo and Rumba were added on to a highly sophisticated repetoire of The Lindy Hop, The Charleston, and The Big Apple; and with it came a golden age of music! Films were strongly influencing fashion and women were experimenting with bold shoulders, nipped waists, mens style tailoring & slinky bias cut gowns. It was an era which idealised the individual, and to me the true beginning of a mix and match style.
