In the meantime, enjoy watching Fred Astaire’s iconic ceiling dance below. Fred dreamed of creating a dance like this since the 1920s, and in Royal Wedding (1951), he finally got his chance.
The illusion of Fred dancing on the ceiling was created by a using a specially built set/dance floor within a rotating drum.
And while you’re here, take a look at Fred’s & Jane’s most celebrated dance from the film.
Commendably, Jane keeps up with the legendary Fred, and infuses the dance with so much personality she just about steals the scene.
