I hope you all had a good summer, its the start of another term and I have started a blog.... It will be a surprise to many of you that I have my finger on the button when it comes to technology! I have many hidden talents ! ! Over the next few months I will be posting random stuff which I hope you will find amusing, interesting and useful.
Anyway here is a film clip of the fabulous Nicholas Brothers who are amazing dancers. Fred Astaire described this dance sequence as the best routine in a film he had ever seen . From the film "Stormy Weather" the boys are dancing to "Jumpin Jive" Enjoy....
