That move in the third gif gets me every time. They trade off jumping over each other’s legs. Just brilliant.

“We are, of course, very lucky. His gift, captured in the movies, is one we can all share forever. He was, he is, and he always will be, our never-ending legend.” - Mikhail Baryshnikov
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRED ASTAIRE!
Whether dressed in top hat, white tie, and tails or in fashionable casual wear with a scarf serving as his belt, Fred Astaire always looked fabulous. Astaire epitomized whatever was cool at the time. According to Benny Green, “[Astaire] had an elegance that aligned itself with what I guess you’d call high society”. In the words of Howard Thompson, Astaire “gave to entertainment annals a champagne radiance that appealed to everybody on all levels, rich or poor”
“I don’t make love by kissing, I make love by dancing”
