Fayard and his younger brother Harold Nicholas were a very exciting dance team.Who performed in a very acrobatic style which would be called flash dancing.
They got there monster break performing in Eddie Cantor’s 1933 film Kid Millions. The Nicholas Brothers performed through out the 1930’s and 40’s during the golden age of MGM movie musicals. They had a great dance sequence with Gene Kelly in the 1948 musical The Pirate with Gene Kelly. We lost Harold in 2000, and his older brother Fayard in 2006
