Initially, I posted the Nicholas brothers' "Jumpin' Jive" number. I just realized that Princess wanted a tap dance number done by a soloist. I totally missed that part. Sorry about that! I'm changing my answer to the "Fascinating Rhythm" dance number from Lady Be Good. Eleanor Powell gets flipped several times near the end of the number. That looks pretty difficult and dangerous to me! LOL


Next: a song sung by Danny Kaye

Lonesome, you got terrific taste, because it's my taste.LOL


The gymnastic- type number I would pick would be the Berry Brothers' sequence in "Fascinating Rhythm" from Lady Be Good ( right after the singer performs).

The Berry Brothers were Hollywood's Greatest Flash Act.



Next: A tap dance production number for a soloist that is not only technically brilliant, but is also rather stringently difficult and dangerous to perform.

Tough choice, but I love this number Cyd danced in BAND WAGON with Fred Astaire-- the Girl Hunt Ballet (just a clip here but really I love ALL of it) -- because it shows off her ballet AND jazz, the sweet AND the sultry, and how dang long her legs were, ha ha ha


 

next

another number with cool gymnastics elements (flips, etc)

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

P.S.

I gotta post that "Red Blues" number you mentioned because I love that SO MUCH
