The Nicholas Brothers were a duo of dancing brothers, Fayard — and Harold — , who excelled in a variety of techniques, including a highly acrobatic technique known as " flash dancing ". With a high level of artistry and daring innovations, they were considered by many to be the greatest tap dancers of their day.
