There are 30 slides and over 65 vibrant, relevant graphics.

There are also 5 embedded videos (url’s included):

---Josephine Baker’s famous banana dance,
---Louise Brooks’ performances in The Street of Forgotten Men and Pandora’s Box,
---the many dances of the 20’s, and

I use a large, clear font with an appealing format.
