The Era of Dance and Deco - 1930's

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.
