Mikhail Baryshnikov called the Nicholas Brothers the greatest dancers he had ever seen in his life. Fred Astaire called the dance number in the clip above the greatest musical dance sequence ever captured on film. Who am I to argue?
Cab Calloway starts off the madness singing “Jumpin Jive” from the film Stormy Weather.

Who am I to argue.
The most amazing thing(?),
…at the END of the song,
they look as fresh(!..!),
as before they started!
Class. Style. Ease. Grace,…
the basis of ‘perfection’.
It’s an apreciated pleasure. 💋
Thanks, Dennis. The splits are amazing in and of themselves; but what knocks me out is how they get up from them. It’s jawdropping to me.
I LOVE this number. I’ve seen it dozens of times on Youtube. The Cab is one of my favorites.
When I see clips like this, I realize that that era was much crazier than we are lead to believe about the “Greatest Generation.”
