Comments
Fayard Nicholas was half of the show-stopping tap-dancing duo (along with younger brother Harold) that thrilled audiences during the 1930s and beyond. They tap-danced their way from vaudeville and Harlem's legendary Cotton Club to Broadway and Hollywood. Known for their airborne splits and acrobatics, the handsome, dapper duo is considered by many to be the greatest dance team ever to work in American movies.
