  1. That looks like it was done in one long take, with no camera cuts for closeups or to change angles.
    It has always boggled my mind how dancers can remember all those moves, none of them repeated, for a dance like that, almost 3 minutes long.

  2. Exactly, DJ! When I see him or Gene Kelly or anyone do a tap dance routine I don’t know if they’re following a set routine or winging it between moves they know. But two dancers doing the routine it has to be learned damn near perfectly.
