Best Female Dancers In the World

The Top Ten

1 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

As sexy and gorgeous as JLo is, no one compares to Shakira. You'd have to go back to Cyd Charisse to find such a unique, sexy and expressive dancer.

She has great music and should be number one she definitely is better than a lot of these dancers because of her talent in dancing with her music that is why she should be at number one cause her dancing is unbeatable in also homers tl write this comment

That's true. Shakira should be number 1

She's very energetic and flexible that's what makes a good dancer m

2 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

I like JLO but I don't really like her dance moves to be honest, I'm not being rude or anything like that.

Defenetley top 10 of the best performers! She can dance so many genre not only hip hop like the most performers but also slasa,flamenco,marengue etc...

Jen is my personal favorite female dancer. She can dance any kind of dancing. I think she's the most versatile & universal dancer - Irina2932

Jennifer I really like how you dance and sing your songs are great I just like your songs I can't stop saying it I love love love it I'm hema 7 years old

3 Beyonce Beyonce Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

Shes beautiful

I love her dance steps

I Love Beyonce Knowles she is a Entertainer that can do both Occupations, she can Sing and Dance with her Three-Octave Vocal Range Vocal Ability and her Rare Sexy Dance Moves she can't do no wrong and she's Beautiful I've Loved Beyonce ever Since she was in Destiny's Child Back in the 90's, now as a Soloist she's even more Better she is a Hollywood Celebrity now, better Known for her Dance Skills now.

It has to be Beyonce either first or second, she is amazing nearly every music video she is dancing and she always puts 110% into her dancers so that's why

4 Sridevi Kapoor Sridevi Kapoor Sridevi Kapoor is an Indian film actress who has worked in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada films.

The legendary lady

Sri is best dancers. She is very nice dancers

Sri is best dancers. She was a great dancers

One of the best

5 Britney Spears Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears (born December 2, 1981) is an American singer and actress who was born in McComb, Mississippi, and grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 more.

She is perfect, she have a sexy voice, she dance very well, she is beautiful and hot, she is a good actress, her music videos are amazing, some of them had have to reach billions, she is the queen of Mickey mouse club house, she play basketball, her new boyfriend Sam is handsome, her children are cuties, her songs are the top of legendary pop songs. I love her. If you can't accept her imperfections when she shaved her hair and when she was a bad mom, you can't get to love her with her success and perfections.

Why ain't she number one?
I mean maybe her dancing skills are declining, but that's because of some wounds in her knees!
Look at her I'm A Salve 4 you session, and Toxic, Me Against The Music... She danced better than her crew!
That's so rare!

Watch Me Against The Music and you'll see why britney has to be at the top 5! Love her...

In her prime she was the best.

6 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

Janet has really complicated choreography & great energy. At her prime & in the world of male and female dancers, she was/is incomparable & very innovative and second only to her brother Michael (they could even be at par sometimes when Janet is aggressive like in Scream, If & Rhythm Nation). My vote goes to Janet.

How Madonna & Shakira made it into the top five beats my imagination. Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce are self confessed disciples of Janet Jackson. Jennifer Lopez was a former back up dancer to Janet, so I can't see these students topping their teacher.

Janet actually has other self confessed disciples on this list namely: Ciara, Aaliyah, Britney Spears & Jenna Dewan (another ex Janet Jackson backup dancer). Paula Abdul was Janet's choreographer on the Control album.

Of every artiste mentioned on this list, Janet Jackson more than the others is linked to various of the names, through her influence or working relationship...That alone says something. Give it ...more

Should be #1!

She is the queen of dance

She is the best I have ever seen, so many dancers of this generation learned and looked up to her. Thanks Janet Damita Jo Jackson my all time best female dancer or let me say Mrs Rhythm Nation.

7 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically more.

During the 80's she was right up there with Michael Jackson

Madonna isn't number 1!?

I really think she dances like jaggers oh yess!

It was funny when she fellk of stage but she was brave and carried on despite her injurys

8 Ciara Ciara Ciara Princess Harris, known mononymously as Ciara, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, model and actress. She is married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Who in the hell did this pole. Everybody knows that Cici can all of these ladies off the stage.

Insulting that Beyonce, Shakira, and JLo are over her...
Only Janet should be over her on this list

Ciara should have been number one no one in the music industry can dance better then her besides Michael Jackson whoever done this did not know what they were doing! No one is better then her! She's gonna always be #1!

Ciara is an amazing dancer, she is probably the est female dancer out right now.

9 Madhuri Dixit Madhuri Dixit Madhuri Dixit, also known by her married name Madhuri Dixit Nene, is an Indian actress who is known for her work in Hindi cinema.

#indian... I am so happy she is in this top 10

She is the best dancer in the world who can dance on any beat of the world perfectly. She is not only the best dancer but also the most beautiful lady in India after Aiswarya Rai & also the best actress in India.

Waiting for your come back in Bollywood.

Madhuri Dixit the Most Beautiful Lady In India of All Time, Best dancer of all time, one of the best actress of all time

I Loved Aaliyah's Dance Moves she always had a Dance Ability of always making her steps look so Popular and cool inspirational and Sexy, Aaliyah had a Talent not just in Movies/Films but as well a Dancer as well, Aaliyah was so smooth she didn't need to really Dance all she had to do was point her finger at the Camera and Belly Dance and she was Dancing all of the way I wish I could Dance like Aaliyah she had some Cool Moves and I Miss her so much Rest in Peace Aaliyah, not only was she Great in the '90s, but once the Early '00s cam around her Dancing Ability has even more Evolved into this Magical kind of Choreography she has Done.

Aaliyah was a Triple Threat she could do it all Sing, Dance, Act, Fashion Model, and her Dancing Ability was Remarkable the way she would hit the Move without putting force into it and make that Move look so Smooth and Sultry and Sexy that's what you call a Rare and also Gifted Dancer I say Aaliyah Dance Moves were Clean and Entertaining to Watch she had her own R&B Hip Hop Style and she Combine that Genre with the Genre of (Dance) and it was just Inspirational and Fun and she was also Beautiful the way she Wear her Make-Up and Clothes and Mixed it with her Choreography she Will always be Known for her Dancing Abilities.

I love Aaliyah So Much because she wasn't trying to compete with other Musical Artists Aaliyah Did her own thing her own Genre, she had Great R&B Music, great Actress and let's not forget her Dancing she Dance like she wasn't trying to Dance but really she was Dancing and Dancing really Good Precision especially the Flamenco Dance Routine in the Video "Are You That Somebody" when I first seen that Video I knew from there that I wanted to be A Dancer when I Grow Up thanks to Aaliyah I Love You Baby Girl.
