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.

Commendably, Jane keeps up with the legendary Fred, and infuses the dance with so much personality she just about steals the scene.
