1920 Cotton Club

Ballet?
Happy! Happy! Pretty Shoes!
New Year’s Party!

The ladies are behind the red curtain.
Actresses or tap dances.
Charleston! Waltz!

The ladies are shopping at Atlantic City, buying different colored shoes,
brown, black, red, white, tan…

In 1920, Cotton Club, Harlem, New York City,
The ladies are showing their legs in an audition for “Hello! Everyone!”
They pick up 10 show girls who have pretty legs.
The show girls put on flapper dresses and bobbed hairstyle.
They put on cranberry red lipsticks.

Wow! Welcome Mayor of Harlem, Mayor of NYC, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway…
They wear tuxedo with black, red and gold bow ties.
The ladies wear white night gowns, sexy back open dresses with jewelries.
Diamond, pearl, red ruby.
Pink Martini, champagne, beer, ginger ale, cocktails.

Lights dim!
Drum roll! Swinging jazz! Spot Light! On!
Duke Ellington welcomes the audience.
