Video of the Week: The Incomparable Nicholas Brothers

Brothers Fayard and Harold Nicholas a.k.a. the Nicholas Brothers formed one of history’s greatest and most beloved dance teams, rising from the nightclub circuit to a successful career on the big screen.

The above scene is from their personal favorite of their over 30 films, 1943’s Stormy Weather. And it just may be the greatest dance routine ever filmed. They come in at 1:30.

Among those the Nicholas brothers later gave dancing instruction to: Janet and Michael Jackson.
