Roller Skating Dances

This has literally been in my drafts for forever, so let's just bring it to the light, shall we? It's three dances on roller skates by Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers. AKA awesomeness!

This is from It's Always Fair Weather, a movie I have yet to see. He's sooo graceful though! And when he starts actually tapping, it's sooo cool!

This is from I Love Melvin, a movie I have also yet to see, but I want to see soooo badly! Anyway, the song is catchy, the dance is sweet, and Donald O'Connor is his usual jubilant self, but not at first. Also, this song is soooo catchy!

This is another incredibly catchy song that you will find yourself singing whenever somebody says,
"Potato, potato (Potateo, potaughto)."It's a lovely dance between two lovely partners, and I also want to see this movie!

In conclusion, if you can dance on roller skates, you are extremely talented you lucky dog!

Ya know, these video posts are supposed to be on Fridays, but I'm gonna try to post on Tuesday nights, and then have extras through the week. So now you have a schedule :D


  1. I LOVE the 'You say potato' song! Have you heard the Ella Fitzgerald version? It's really good. :-)
    And HOW do these people do that? It blows my mind.

  2. Naomi: I looked up the Ella Fitzgerald version, and I loved it!

  3. It's Always Fair Weather is one of my favorite Gene Kelly musicals! I remember the first time I watched it, we didn't have any idea the roller skate dance existed (this was back when I was a teen, so YouTube didn't exist yet). We got to this part, and my mom and brother and I about exploded with awe. We rewound it at least twice, probably three times, to watch it over and over, called my dad in to see it -- we were agog. I'm still agog over it, honestly. My goodness, what talent.

    I've seen the Donald O'Connor video before, but not the Fred Astaire! I need to see that movie, obviously.

    Thanks for sharing!


Many comments. Such wow. Much happiness. Very awesomeness. I know that's not entirely correct grammar, but that's how comments make me feel! Feel free to leave one expressing anything from what color shoes you're wearing to how much you disagree with my opinion :D
