That was a terrific tap performance. A friend of mine showed me a few tap steps and it isn't easy.
I always admired Gregory and Maurice Hines (Gregory passed away in 2000) and Savion Glover too.
Here's a link with a video showing one tap step. Good tap dancing always amazes me.

It's a lost art, that's for sure.

Here is a fun video of a guy dancing the same dance in 100 different locations.

Such a discipline plus practice, practice and dedication to master ballet

Hey, it's about dance. Know one of the background dancers (no close-ups on the video).
Extremely talented guy who knows every type of dance (except ballet).
Can't believe this was back in 1990.

Georgian dancers are probably the best Ive seen. Better than the Cossacks because they do a LOT of really difficult tricks.

Another great, great dance company - The Igor Moiseyev Dance company from Russia (old Soviet Union). If they are EVER EVER EVER visiting your city while on tour you MUST go see them.
