I just had to share this video with my EvC family. These two old entertainers were entertainers in the truest sense of the word. They had multidimensional talent. Where have all of the good entertainers gone?

Nicholas Brothers and Gene Kelly.

I had never even heard of these Nicholas Brothers before, but after watching a couple of their routines I was impressed with the sheer athleticism of these early dance pioneers.

Wiki writes:

he Nicholas Brothers were a famous African American team of dancing brothers, Fayard (1914–2006) and Harold (1921–2000). With their highly acrobatic technique ("flash dancing"), high level of artistry and daring innovations, they were considered by many the greatest tap dancers of their day. Growing up surrounded by Vaudeville acts as children, they became stars of the jazz circuit during the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance and went on to have successful careers performing on stage, film, and television well into the 1990s.

I personally have never seen dancing as entertaining.

Do you mean that dancing is NOT entertaining or do you mean that these clips are very entertaining?
