Description: Nicholas Brothers signature piece. Nicholas Brothers were a team of dancing brothers, Fayard (19142006) and Harold (19212000), who performed a highly acrobatic technique known as "flash dancing". With a high level of artistry and daring innovations, they were considered by many to be the greatest tap dancers of their day. Their performance in the musical number "Jumpin Jive" (with Cab Calloway and his orchestra) featured in the movie Stormy Weather is considered by many to be the most virtuosic dance display of all time. Good condition. All items come with a Certificate of Authenticity and can be shipped worldwide.
