75 Years Ago, One of the Best Dance Routines Ever Was Filmed, Unrehearsed on the First Take

quote [ Fred Astaire said it was ‘the greatest dancing he had ever seen on film’. In a dance performance for the ages, the Nicholas Brothers, Fayard (1914–2006) and Harold (1921–2000), dazzled audiences with their acrobatic routine to Cab Calloway’s hit song, Jumpin’ Jive. ]

While "unrehearsed" certainly needs clarification in this story and is surely a bit of exaggeration, it is not unusual to do blocking without the principals. And I'm not sure why you think "it's extremely unlikely that it was a multi-camera shoot." Multi-cam filming was common even back then.

Also, Fayard is just one of the Nicholas brothers.
