Gina loved being a dancer at the Roaring Twenties Club; she adored the glamour of the period, and the carefree atmosphere that existed. Entering the club from a side door, she'd sashay across the floor, her beautiful form stepping lightly, the long fringes of her dress swaying with every move, knowing full well that she was capturing the attention of every gentleman in the place, including Mac, the bartender.
