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. ]

If you really think this was rehearsed, they probably would have been a little more orderly in their performance.

He Nicholas Brothers knew the setup and blocking for the shot (how they’d end it and where to go.) They knew what dance routine segment to incorporate for the performance. It’s unrehearsed in that they were essentially feeding off each other’s performance, free styling. That lives on today with pop locking dance competition.
