Here are the Nicholas Brothers dancing in Stormy Weather. Check out the big finish. I can do the splits, but not while jumping down stairs. I am tempted to try this. When I was little, I saw a woman on a local TV dance show jump down into the splits and get stuck. She kept smiling with her hands in the air, trying to bounce up to her feet, but couldn’t make it happen. The host of the show had to pull her up out of the splits and take her off camera. I hope she kept trying that move until she got it.
