That staircase choreo? Good grief.

thekidshouldseethis:

The co-curator has asked for this one daily since 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, “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.
