There's a subset of Busby Berkeley Numbers that could be called "EstherWilliams Numbers" for their most famous star ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esther_Williams info]] at TheOtherWiki): scenes done in pools, featuring wonderful examples of synchronized swimming. Usually with several female swimmers standing in a row on the left side of the screen and jumping in the water sideways to the right. Traditionally the camera then follows them swimming under water and then, in bird perspective forming a huge circle with their floating bodies.

* Believe it or not, ''[[HighSchoolMusical High School Musical 3]]'', particularly "I Want It All" - which actually makes sense: Sharpay and Ryan Evans rule the theatre club and share a dream of becoming Broadway stars.
** ''High School Musical 2'' has a shot in "Fabulous" that also homages Creator/BusbyBerkeley dance maneuvers.
