Happy Friday, ladies and gents! Did you, like me, wake up this morning thinking, I could really use more beautiful Broadway dancers in my life? Granted, that's pretty much how I feel EVERY morning. But today, the need was especially strong.
Well, the musical theater universe has answered our prayers in pretty spectacular fashion: Meet "Stormy Monday," a little gem of a clip that may have Monday in the title but is pretty much tailor-made for Friday video break time.
Masterminded by Broadway performer and choreographer Grady McLeod Bowman, it features two of the Great White Way's most talented—not to mention most attractive—dancers: Samantha Sturm (you know her from Matilda, On the Town and your leg/feet fantasies) and Ryan Steele (Newsies, Matilda, your pirouette dreams...really just your dreams, generally).
Pretty people doing steamy choreo set to a blues classic? Yes. Yes, please.

It is hands down the best two-and-a-half minutes you can spend on YouTube today. (And that is a SERIOUS CLAIM, because there is also an all-hamster remake of the "Friends" theme song circulating right now). Enjoy!
