For those of you looking for a break from the ever bleaker news cycle, I came across this excellent video.
It is a restored and colourised dance segment from the 1943 film Stormy Weather.
Cab Calloway and his band perform an absolutely swinging version of Jumpin’ Jive while the Nicholas Brothers perform a spectacular tap dance routine.
Do give it a watch, it will put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step. Amazingly the Nicholas Brothers were still doing these routines up until the 1990s!

Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
