“Ceiling Dance” from “Royal Wedding"


Hi All -

Here is the peerless Fred Astaire in the famous gravity defying “ceiling dance” from “Royal Wedding.” (The movie alludes to the wedding of Queen Elizabeth to Philip.) 

ROYAL WEDDING directed by Stanley Donen (1951 93 min.)

P. S. I recall seeing an interview with Mikhail Baryshnikov who was asked by the interviewer about whom he considered the greatest dancer ever. Without a moment’s hesitation Misha replied, “Fred Astaire, of course."
