A while back, DH and I were watching an American songbook documentary and there were these two black tap dancers who were more amazing than Fred Astaire.  And we were like, who are these two guys and doesn’t it suck that we’ve never heard of them even though we have heard of Astaire.  Turns out they’re the Nicholas Brothers and Fred Astaire agrees that they had the greatest dance number of all time.

    Ah, the Nicholas Brothers! I’m old enough to have seen “That’s Entertainment” in the theaters when it was released, and my mother gave my kid all three DVDs when she was a toddler. The kid LOVED them. I had the only four-year-old Esther Williams fan in town (and had to explain the racism and sexism of many of the clips…) Still fun.

    That dance number is jaw dropping. Especially the end. Whew! Amazing dancers.
