Dancer, actor, singer and choreographer Gregory Hines was born on February 14, 1946. His dance solo in the film White Nights (see above) has always been one of my favorites, but it only gives a taste of his extraordinary talent. This New York Times article, written at the time of his death, gives a brief snapshot of his life and work. As a dancer, he upheld a tradition of Black tap dance that sadly, is slowly disappearing. If you haven't seen the films below, I highly recommend that you check them out and remember the greatness of Gregory Hines.
