Hi Cathie....Thanks for those videos of the amazing Nicholas Brothers. I have been known to watch a whole movie on TV for the ten minutes or so they would get to perform. Unfortunately, due to the racism of the times, they were not included in the story line of a whole movie, but for me they were always the stars of the show. I hope you had a Marry Christmas, and let's hope we we will all be tap dancing in 2022 when the pandemic finally peters out....

Thanks Simon -- yes, the Nicholas Brothers were terrific, I had never seen this clip before and I thought it was wonderful.
