The Nicholas Brothers tap dancers

Here’s a tap dance video of my favourite tap dancin’ duo, Harold and Fayard Nicholas, the Nicholas Brothers, in Stormy Weather.

Athleticism, syncopation, grace, and all round dynamic hoofin was their trademark style. And, they did it in suits. Classy! Band directed by Cab Calloway.

Nicholas Brothers Dance Routine in Stormy Weather

Nothing compares to the Nicholas Brothers… They’re a great example for all hoofers to learn tap steps from. I like to inpsire all my Toronto tap dance students with videos  from this duo. Stuff like this inspires us all to learn how to tap dance.

Or, learn how to tap dance better. Heck, I can literally watch videos of the brothers for hours!

    Not only that- but jumping OVER each other going down those massive stairs… talk about fearlessness. And flexibility!
