The Kid Should See This

The Nicholas Brothers in the greatest dance number ever filmed

My four year old asked for this one daily after we first watched it, and it’s pretty clear as to why — it’s probably about the best dance routine I’ve ever seen. And I’m not the only one who thinks that: Fred Astaire once called this performance “the greatest dance number ever filmed.” Mikhail Baryshnikov said they were “the most amazing dancers I have ever seen in my life — ever,” and “Those guys are perfect examples of pure genius.” 

Everyone should see this. From the 1943 classic, Stormy Weather, Fayard and Harold Nicholas: the phenomenal Nicholas Brothers

Thanks, @nrdeming.

The updated video link now starts with an awesome performance of Jumpin’ Jive by Cab Calloway and his orchestra.
