I adored Fred Astaire. Baryshnikov is right Fred was the ultimate in dancing. How I wish i could have danced with him. There will never be another Fred Astaire no matter how hard they try. When he died it was a great loss for dancing.

Baryshnikov is too humble. Fred Astaire may have been good at what he did, but he could never have done what Baryshnikov could do. Those leaps, turns, jumps - Baryshnikov was a Kirov ballet dancer!

Of course Astaire could have done what Baryshnikov did. That is the point. And he could have sung the ballet at the same time and done it all with a smile on his face. The fact that Astaire could make his body do anything and make it look easy is exactly what Baryshnikov is saying.
