Happy Leap Year

To celebrate leap year this February 29, here are the best leapers in the movies: the fabulous Nicholas Brothers in their show stoppin', aptly named "Jumpin' Jive" dance number from one of my favorite movie musicals of all time, Stormy Weather. They are simply amazing ... you'll see once they get to the stairs.

  1. Amazing!!! My kids studied tap for many years and I developed a love of the dance form. That's one very cool number, thanks!

  2. Aren't they though? They are incredible. Sadly, most of their film roles were relegated to one shot "specialty numbers" so that they could be edited out for the southern states, just like Lena Horne's.
