9/1       Low Down Dance  The years of the Harlem Renaissance changed American songs. Love was still there but so was something much earthier—in the sentiments, the musical styles, and the dancing. Especially the dancing, and especially a dance called the low down. There’s only one thing—there never was such a dance. Nobody ever did the steps. It existed entirely within songs.
