Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather

I remember watching this in a very small theater and when the Nicholas Brothers did the flying splits over each other on the oversized stairs, every man in the room groaned each time they landed. Now I'm impressed that they can rise up nearly as easily as they go down into the splits.

Just incredible.


Ever see Greogry and Maurice Hines dancing in "The Cotton Club?"

Gregory, you left us too soon.

Agreed, but these are the only flying splits I've ever seen. How about you? I can't remember the guy's name now, but there was a dancer who made it look effortless and smooth. He's my favorite.
When I looked at the clip, it seems they managed it by hitting the floor heels first.
