These two dancers came from very different training backgrounds. Gregory Hines was a tap dancer known for his improvisational style. Baryshnikov, of course, was classically trained.
Though both are dancers you’ll never tire of watching, you’ll notice the differences in their styles. This is one video you’ll want to watch through once, then go back and stop it periodically to see a side by side comparison. Watch their feet…as well as their upper bodies.
Watch this 1985 political thriller and marvel at the four flawlessly executed and highly inventive dance highlights. Choreography mainly by Baryshnikov, Hines, and Twyla Tharp. A real shame if you miss this one! (Available in HD for playback on Kindle Fire HD, Xbox 360, PS3, Roku, TiVO or other Amazon Instant Video HD compatible devices)
