3Hrithik Roshan
2nd rank should given to hritik reason is.. his clear steps and perfect movements. beat and his rythm goes hand in hand
Finest dancer in India... Fantastic..
The way he moves it's really please to watch and worth seeing... Just dance!
Hrithik should be 2nd best after Michael as he is the god of dance and has a very good flexible body which supports his steps. All his recent movies and dance shows show how efficient he is in dancing.
Ya correct he has his own style when comparing with prabhu so after hrithik prabhu will come

5Usher
ARE you serious usher has been the man since his debut. The way he dances and the showmanship he has is fantastic. He can make the simplest move look so good. Who was the last person who could do that? I think that was mj
Usher should definitely be much higher up on this ranking. He is at least a better dancer than hrithick roshan.
Usher is the best dancer
[Newest]His dance moves are like Michael Jacksons dance moves and he is my second hero.

6Chris Brown
I will like Chris brown because he moves all his body to dance including stepping and stunts. HE IS THE BEST. HE IS NEW WITHIN NEW STEPS. I LOVE HIM. WATCH STORM THE YARD AND BE CARRIED AWAY WITH DANCE LETS DANCE IT ALL THANK YOU.

tundor

7Fred Astaire
Unbelieveable!, that anyone in their right mind who could think or say that anyone else is even a close second to Fred Astaire has not watched one of his films. Michael Jackson, who many think was the best dancer of all time couldn't tie Fred Astaire's shoelaces copyed James Brown and who knows whom else. All his moves were virtually the same. Take a close look at his dance moves. Fred Astaire was in a league all by himself my friends and make no mistake about that. He also choreographed a lot of his dance and was the ultimate perfectionist. Wake up people!
People will be watching, and be amazed, at Astaire (and Rogers) 1000 years from now. He is that good.
THE GREATEST, BAR NONE! ARE YOU KIDDING ABOUT SOME OF THE OTHER NAMES HERE? GENE KELLY IS A DISTINCT SECOND, WAY AHEAD OF ALL THE REST OF THESE PEOPLE. THEY WERE UNBELIEVABLY TALENTED, AND PRACTICED TILL IT WAS PERFECTED. KELLY WAS GOOD TO LOOK AT, TOO!
You are so right! These uninformed people all voted for singers. They don't know what dancing is about. I want to see them try something like Fred's," Puttin on the Ritz." Or, maybe they should check out the Nicholas Brothers... Wow! Besides, Fred and his sister Adele lived in Weehawken, NJ when they were young. It's right across the Hudson River from Broadway. Oh, did I mention, that's where I'm from!
[Newest]Class with style. That makes it easy, and possible... Fact is its hard as hell. Totally blessed and gifted!

8Raghava Lawrence
He is the best, according to my opinion. Dance is not about stunts but of craze, his
Dance makes enjoy every movement compared to allu, etc
He is my best dancer. Look at his different composition of dances and his expressions which vibrate masses in a great way. His effortless style, mannerisms and charisma are way better than those stars of now!
He is my best dancer because he danced very well in tamil film kaanchana. I like him very much. His style while dancing is very nice.
[Newest]He is a very nice dancer... His movements are really awesome...

WORLD FOLLOWS HER FOR HER CLASSICAL DANCE

FROM BIBHUTI BHUSAN HARI
[Newest]Really she is best dancer

10Mikhail Baryshnikov
This list pisses me off... Michael Jackson improves. He never took a class in his life. Baryshnikov studied for years, and is the true master
His technique is perfect, his moves are perfect, his dance is perfect. He is considered the greatest dancer by critics and he not on top spot. Shame on you people.
He is a dancer's dancer. Made it all look easy. Posture and technique perfect.

The Contenders

11Jr. NTR
Ntr is very good dancer in south he should in 1st place I think he is doing good now he is 2nd rajinikanth in south
Ntr is one of the top most dancer in all indian heros except hritik rohan, his dancing skills were awesome. According to me he is the best dancer in telugu industry and also in all other actors.
NTR must be in the list of top 5 dancers in India.
How come allu arjun?
Allu Arjun is a good dancer, but don't have grace in his dance!
[Newest]Rating can not be from the fans. See his energies and perfection. Many other hero's like allu Arjun does not show any perfection in dances. Junior NTR is always number 1 in the world

Wow he's like an Usher and Chris brown caliber type of dancer, 18th is madness.
[Newest]Best original dancer... He has the moves x

17Gene Kelly
He's not even in the top 50...
For shame, internet, for shame.
To those of you who haven't seen "Singing in the Rain", please do. You see, the dances were done in almost one take, no breaks. It was done to show how amazing his dances were. And by the way, if you don't think tap dancing is good dancing, I suggest you get off the top 40, stop "Dougeying" and learn a little music history.
Come on Gene Kelly belongs in the top ten best dancers of all time. The man was still dancing and contributing to dance until the end of his life at age 83! I saw him live in 1976 in St Louis, MO and I was extremely impressed with his agility. Besides who else has danced with a cartoon mouse?
Just see him dance on roller skates. I am sure that no other mortal could perform that dance. He was the best in his era and also forever. He will not see his like again.
[Newest]Gene Kelly dances tremendously, but pulling off a style while he taps or pirouettes or DANCES ON ROLLER SKATES. He should be everyone's example for a triple threat

18Harold Nicholas

19Ginger Rogers

20Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson is an idol without her Jennifer Lopez wouldn't even have a career set for her so she need to be at number 3. She was an idol and she could always dance and still doing it at 45 so she an icon. More like number one!
the best dancer to me, the queen the only person who touch her is her brother only! period!
The best female dancer ever!
[Newest]Janet is the greatest female dancer of all time period!
