Feeling done up after a week of teaching? I recommend a dose of the Nicholas Brothers. Specifically, "Jumpin' Jive," with an assist from Cab Calloway (Stormy Weather, 1943):
Tap dancers, of course, can often work well into their sixties...and later. Harold Nicholas crops up again in the challenge dance from Tap--46 years later, when he was nearing seventy. In tapping order: Arthur Duncan; Bunny Briggs; Jimmy Slyde; Steve Condos (of the Condos Brothers); Harold Nicholas; Howard "Sandman" Sims; Sammy Davis, Jr.; Gregory Hines. The kid watching them is a very young Savion Glover.
