The music started playing right away and before I knew it there was a trio of flappers just dancing away. They were doing the Charleston. All heel kicking, stepping, and twirling - all in unison. They were having a carefree old time and didn't look like they were going to stop anytime soon. So, I let them dance - and dance all night they did.
They say that the roaring 20's were a time of zaniness and craziness and our trio "Roxy" flapper ladies were among the zaniest and craziest.
As cousins go Roxy Ash Blonde, Roxy Black, and Roxy White were very much alike. They were only a year apart in age and were all raised together. So, their likes and dislikes were pretty much the same. They loved to dress alike, have similar hair styles albeit of different colors, and do the same things. But when it came to dancing - well that's where they differed a little.
Roxy Ash Blonde loved to do everything with her cousins, Roxy Black and Roxy White, but despite her best efforts was never able to master the "Charleston." She just could not get her feet to move with the same rhythm as her arms. Her time was always off. So, no matter how hard she tried it was beyond her athletic abilities. So, she'd spend her time watching her cousins dance the night away.
Unlike her cousin, Roxy Ash Blonde, who despite her best efforts was never able to master the "Charleston" steps, Roxy Black was a master at it. She could move with a rhythm all her own and was fascinating to watch. In fact, she considered herself the best dancer of the 3 cousins. She knew her cousin, Roxy As Blonde, would agree with her. Now her cousin, Roxy White, well that was a different story.
Roxy White was also a master at it. She taught herself very quickly and in no time had taught her cousin, Roxy Black, too. She had a certain style and flair to her "Charleston" and was fascinating to watch. In fact, she considered herself the best dancer of the 3 cousins. However, her cousin, Roxy Black, didn't agree and was always trying to compete with her.
Despite their competing ways the cousins always traveled together and always enjoyed themselves where ever they went. They were just a trio of happy flappers.
