Answer by  emagana (23)

Jazz music helped to usher in the 1920's with its fast rhythms, it created tremendous ballrooms in Harlem, such as the Savoy Ballroom, or The Cotton Club. During this time many people were living lavishly and thus the term the Gilded Age was used to describe this epoch. It created a sense of entitlement, but it came crashing down in 1929.
