noun, verb, adjective and great movie star: 1. graceful, exquisite, suave, and perfect. 2. to act in this manner. 3. Fred Astaire, the best dancer ever (Baryshnikov even said so), who was the epitome of suaveness and elegance combined with superb athleticism and grace. In the Hollywood of the 30's and 40's, he was hugely popular, combining the cool of Bogart with the class of Carey Grant. An actor, drummer, and singer, he had famous song composers vying to write songs for him- one truly cool dude.
1. I tried to astaire it, but failed dismally because I'm a clunk. 2. That astaire had me at hello. 3. Watching Astaire makes me believe in the magic of art.
