The Nicholas Brothers and a full moon eclipse

It's a bit of a grey day here and my energy is low. I know that a lot of people are going crazy over the upcoming tax day deadline. Plus tonight is the beginning of four lunar eclipses, this one in the Aries/Libra axis.

FULL MOON TOTAL ECLIPSE at 26 ARIES-LIBRA
April 14-15, 3:42am EDT, 12:42am PDT, 8:42am GMD

So it seems like a good day for swing, swing, swing with the Nicholas Brothers, probably the best tap dancers to work in Hollywood. If anybody can tap the problems away, it's those two, aided by Cab Calloway.



From the movie: STORMY WEATHER 1943
It is said that no less an authority on dance than Fred Astaire once said that this was in his opinion the best dance number ever put on film. One thing for sure, the Nicholas Brothers were without a doubt the best Tap Dance team ever, case closed. I have included the entire number including Cab Calloway's opening vocal. The dance starts at about the 1:30 mark.
