The Nicholas Brothers
Today's illustration is of Fayard and Harold Nicholas, better known as the Nicholas Brothers. They were a team of dancing brothers who performed flash dancing, a form of tap dance that combined dance with acrobatics. They became stars during the height of the Harlem Renaissance. Their performance with Cab Calloway in the movie Stormy Weather is considered to be the most virtuosic dance display of all time.
