Top Ten Best Dancers of All Time
The Top Ten
HE IS GOD OF DANCING
HE INSPIRED THE WHOLE WORLD
HE IS THE KING AND ALWAYS BE LONG LIVE KING LONG LEGEND LONG LIVE MICHAEL JACKSON
King of dancer, he is the best dancer in the world, no one can beat MJ.
Best dancer in the history of history of time I loved him he is so good Michael will always rule in all of our hearts GO MICHAEL!
Michael Jackson invented The Lean, popularized The Robot, The Moonwalk & Many many more popular dance moves. He is an innovator, A pioneer... And all the other dancers... I'm not gonna lie, they're great dancers... but they're no Michael Jackson... They didn't make small dance moves known all around the world, they didn't make dance moves there own... they're not well-known for there Amazing dancing... And they're not innovators or pioneers... they're followers... I'm not saying they can't dance I'm just saying they can't and will never be able to dance like Michael Jackson (= It's just impossible... although if you don't believe me and you can prove there's someone who can dance better I'd be happy to check them out :D... but until then Michael Jackson is the Best dancer EVER! XD All for L.O.V.E
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.
He rocks I like his song yeah 3x and his dance in it... He is unbeatable after Michael Jackson he should have been there there would have been a storm if he was there he is just the best
I like CHRIS BROWN because he can do any dance move
Chris Brown is an amazing dancer I love him so much he has so much talents I can keep track and I would have to say he is the most talented human of our generation and the king of r&b of today I love him so much and a lot of people hate him because of an incident that happened 10 years ago
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
Usher is better than Michael Jackson but whatever usher is sex you 2
Prabu deva is very awesome dancer
He is the diamond of India
Hats off dancer
He is awesome dancer.. No body is like him. After michael jackson he is only one who can rule on world by his dance..
Wow... He's best ever... Prabhu means god and he is really a god of dancing in india
Prabhu Deva is the best dancer in the world and he is the Michael Jackson no one in this world can beat him he will do the dance with various styles and he enjoys the dance and he will not become tension he will not show up his dance even Michael Jackson cannot do the dance like him. Prabhu deva will do fastest steps than Michael Jackson so he is god for dancers and he is the inspiration for all Indian Dancers and as well as western dancers so I Love Prabhu Deva...
People will be watching, and be amazed, at Astaire (and Rogers) 1000 years from now. He is that good.
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!
Astaire & Rogers were spectacular. He had moves Michael Jackson didn't- and if he were of the same time as Jackson, dancing in that style, he could have done anything Jackson did, and more, and the same goes for Ginger. A lot of dancing now uses the upper body- like the "robot" type moves-Fred had incredible feet, from tap moves to whatever-and if he were around now he could have done the upper body moves with the best of them, so: Fred- and Ginger (hypothetically)- have everyone beat.
Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson - probably the greatest western dancers of the century.
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
1 favourite thing hrithik Dance in any body can't find dance mistake...
& his step is mind blowing.. Really I see one dancer in my life hrthik... Hrithik... & only hrithik...
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!
He is a south indian Michael and dance is not equal to gymnastic which was done by others dance which done by ntr, hritik, Michael jackson is called dance
He is a COPYCAT, he can't dance. If anything he should be at the BOTTOM of this list. No he shouldn'r be on here at all!
JT is an INSPIRATION
i mean he'z a successful dancer singer and a brilliant actor
well he is my idol
watch justin timberlake tap dance nothin' else video on youtube u'll surely louve it
He must be in the top 10... He is a better dancer than many above him here... He deserves the a place in the top 10... JT rocks
Wow he's like an Usher and Chris brown caliber type of dancer, 18th is madness.
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
This list is RIDICULOUS! Of course Mikhail Baryshnikov is the BEST DANCER, not these pop/rock wannabe poseurs whose dillusional fans convince themselves that their fave is the best dancer ever, when clearly he/she isn't!
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.
This list is an ABSOLUTE JOKE. Of course Mikhail Baryshnikov is the best dancer, not some pop jock who can't dance at all.
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.
She is best among all! Most versatile dancer of all time. She is the best. No one can beat her in expressions and clear moves! He dancing is known as mysterious Dancing.
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!
The queen of pop and dance. Period. Her brother Michael would definitely agree. He would want his sister right behind him on any top dancer list. Him #1; her #2
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.
Gene Kelly is the greatest dancer who has ever lived bar none. His flow and originality was amazing for his time and he is still the best dancer ever. If you don't believe me just watch singing in the rain!
One of the finest talent in India. Just watch his steps he is a true rockstar
He might be confined to a region (telugu & malayalam)... Definitely he is going to rock in future..
He is the upcoming great dancer with putting great efforts,
Even dances with grace
He is the fabulous dancer... He must be in 3rd position
Just type MY love is gone song and in the night song... You will know his talent. A true rock star
All... We are influenced by who and how people are viewed in the media. This influences our voting regardless of how we think. Before Michael Jackson, James Brown, Gregory Hines, Prince, etc... They pulled from the Greatest Dancers of all times The Nicholas Brothers. Check out You Tube "Stormy Weather" 1943 and you can see for yourselves. Don't always assume it's someone from our generation. Our generation had to of learned from someone before them.
The only reason I can imagine that anyone here votes for neither of the Nicholas Brothers is not having seen their performances. It is that easy. Luckily YouTube is only a click away!
They are the greatest of all time, I just seen their video on utube. and I am having pain right now after watching stormy jumping splits weather. My God, they are simply the greatest and they are not from my era. Thank you to the Nicholas brothers!
I am a Harold nicholas I am a very good dancer vote me plece
i like you
Michael jackson is leading, but James brown isn't even in the top 10? For shame.
Michael Jackson was inspired by James Brown, yet "CHRIS BROWN" beats him out? Are we serious here folks? Let's give JB the respect he deserves!
Holy oversight batman! James Brown is the originator, there is none greater, all others who follow are merely imitators. Hammer, Michael, Usher, Brown would not be in the list were it not for the man that made the moves and created the hooks that ALL of them sampled and reused... Take Superbad and Funky Drummer alone.
James Brown should be higher than Chris Brown. I guess only the young people are voting.
Queen of Classical Dance... I Like it...
Dumbest dancer ever. How can you even compare her with Chris Brown & Michael Jackson
Madhuri is the queen of dancing and bollywood. What lovely and remarkable expressions. She is surely the best. I appeal to everyone to please vote for madhuri. She deserves to top the list
Madurai is the best I mean by the way she moves is like awesome
She is the Best dancer in the world! No one can match her elegance, expressions, moves! She's the epitome of the dancer!
She kept up with Fred, and she did it moving backwards! Incredible...
Ginger needs to be way higher.
Ginger Rogers is the best female dancer of all time on screen.
Shakira is number 2 after Michael Jackson. Her moves are absolutely amazing!
She is the best dancer. Her moves drives me crazy m trying hard to dance just like her... GO SHAKIRA...
What? Not number one!? Shes the queen of dancing! Her dancing is so SICK!
Shakira just might be one of the most famous Latin singers in the world.
Superb sexy & beautiful dancer in the world! She's my favorite.. ;)
Your one of the biggest fan ;)
Man he rocked the stage with his dancing and his films. Elvis the untouchable, number 1
Fantastic dancer, he was the first to sing and dance at the same time. Before anyone did anything Elvis did everything. Why no 20?
Nobody even moved when they were singing before Elvis came along. He invented music and simultaneous dancing. Made 33 films singing and dancing. Thr greatest entertainer, singer and dancer ever, added to which he was the most beautiful looking man ever. The King.
Fantastic dancer, beautiful body, beautiful moves. Dancing and singing simultaneously didn’t exist until elvis came along. What a star but 19 poor imitators before him, what a joke.
Nice job Chloe you are in the 20 and higher then Maddie and always should be
She is not only a real person and has her own insecurity's alike the rest of the human kind. She is misunderstood and shown the world during teen choice that she can dance and that's important, she can prove herself
I loved Chloe on Dance Moms, I love her now. You're amazing Chloe, you should definitely be among the greats of the top ten. You're in Michael Jackson's league.
She is amazing and works so hard after all she has been through on Dance Moms
Greatest dancer ever... She was Born to Dance!
The best female "dancer" ever. If you've never heard of her (Google! ) In one of the all time best dance sequences EVER, Powell & Fred Astaire amazed to "Begin the Begine" in the movie "Broadway Melody of 1940." I watch it today and am blown away by Powell & her agility and rhythm. If you want to see "dancer" in the true sence of the word. Watch anything performed by Eleanor Powell!
Young people don't have a clue, first of all you had to dance even before you could act. Eleanor Powell was the best...
Without a doubt, the greatest tap dancer of all-time!
WACTH PURPLE RAIN AND HIS VIDEOS ENTERTAINING TO WACTH
AWESOME! He doesn't need a choreographer! He's just raw!
This man doesn't even need a choreographer! He goes freestyle and his flexible.
Prince can dance like MJ but MJ can't do what Prince does...
I feel like les twins should be top two on the list. First of all the second guy after Michael Jackson, Prabhu Deva mostly only dances by choreography but I 'm talking about dancers who can freestyle on the spot and can make their dance look like it was choreographed. Even every time they dance they show you the music, they become the music, they hit every beat, literally. And they dance like this on the spot! Also I haven't seen anybody who can do such hard and complex moves yet flow through every beat and sound in a song or beat. And also these guys have twin telepathy so when they dance together it's way better than just one of them dancing because they show you the beauty and art of being a duo and they know how to always become the image of the song through dance. They have the power to have people eyes stuck on them who are interested or fascinated by dance because what can I say their...art. I have also never seen anybody who has such spot on musicality as them. It's like music ...more
35? PLEASE. They deserve way higher. They were born dancers. Larry and Laurent are on a whole another level. Their musicality is so out of this world and insane, it's almost as if they're not human. They're extremely talented and original. they should be #2, right under their idol Michael Jackson. Love them.
The actual best dancers in the world. Nobody can beat them right now. Mainly cause they main reference is the best dancer of all time, Michael Jackson.
They are just so talented and original mans. They dance with their heart and they feel the music
I. LOVE. MADDIE.
I can't believe people actually believe that she is a cocky person. She herself and many other former dance moms stars revealed that the show is fake.
Have you even seen her on interviews or anything?!
Also, we're talking about dancing, not personality (even though her personality is also wonderful). Maddie's technique is UNBEATABLE. She has also accomplished so much more such as dancing for Sia and acting/dancing in the Book of Henry!
I truly believe Maddie should be at least in the top 10 and should be put higher than her rival Chloe Lukasiak. Not only has she won 2 national titles and have been 1st runner up at 2 other nationals, she also managed to getting into the top 3 at the dance awards which is the most prestigious dance competition there is. Furthermore, she has won best dancer 3 years in a row at teen choice awards. Moreover, she is a featured dancer in Sia music videos. She was phenomenal on dance moms, the only reason as to why she’s is so down low on the list is because the shoe is edited in a way to make her seem like a brat.
Sorry Maddie, you're a complete jerk. I don't know how you have fandoms who worship you, you're so cocky and rude. I can't believe you actually made it up to #23.
She is pretty. She has great techniques and connects with the judges and audiences amazingly. I can't believe chloe is higher than her on the list.
Bruno is the modern day Michael Jackson, with slick moves combined with a funky sound and great vocals, he should be higher on this list.
This guy has got all the moves you're looking for. He deserves a better spot on this list. I mean, it's Bruno for pete's sake.
He is awesome it will rain when I was your man grenade just the way you are count on me 24k magic uptown funk it all good
No way he should be at the top stupid website.
Paula Abdul grew up in the San Fernando Valley, California. She began taking dance lessons when she was eight. She attended Van Nuys High School, where she was senior class president and head cheerleader. After graduating in 1980, she started college at Cal State-Northridge, majoring in T.V. and radio. After joining the L.A. lakers cheerleaders, she became head cheerleader/choreographer after only a few months, eventually dropping out of college to dance and choreograph full-time. She was recruited by The Jacksons to choreograph their 1984 "Torture" video, the first in a long list of videos and movies she would choreograph. She branched out into singing with her first CD, "Forever Your Girl", which had lackluster sales until the single "Straight Up" exploded onto the charts in December 1988 and she has been a popular singer/dancer ever since, enhanced by her stint as a judge on the hit series "American Idol" (2002)
I'm furious! Paula was absent in this list. She is real dancer and she proved it in her music videos. I love her dances, especially her step...
shes the first dancer I think of when I think of best dancer she is way good too good to be true and is way better than jennifer lopez who's number six at least she's in the top 100 of the lists that usually doesn't happen with me finally I completely agree what user alexandr's comment about abdul oh yeah shes the best dancer ever
She Is Fantastic, A Role Model In Fact!
Worlds best dancer hands down perfect technique stunning absolutely stunning
Bolshoi's Principle dancer! Best ballet dancer ever! Ballet is the structure for all dance. She is fantastic.
First of all, this list is stupid because it covers ALL of dance. No one does it like Svetlana, though (except Evgenia). She is absolutely stunning with flexibility. I would rather vote Evgenia Obratzova but for some ridiculous reason she's not on the list. For those of you who are voting for their favorite hip hop or pop singer in this list, you clearly have no knowledge of dance.
His technical expertise, plus his beauty, charisma and intensity ensured no empty seats when he performed around the world. He is #1 in my book. For the record, Rudolf thought
Fred Astaire was the epitome.
She's mastered many styles of dancing throughout her career. Although many are experts in their specific style, Madonna has changed and perfected a variety of dance forms, not to mention that she is classically trained in ballet and extremely flexible.
People forget that Madonna had a full-ride college scholarship for dance. She started as a dancer and is proficent in many different styles. She also continues to be one of the few who can sing live while dancing.
AMAZING FUN NICE HOT SEXY AWESOME COOL CUTE
MJ is number one just because he is popular but there's a lot of better dancers. Anyway...
Jason derulo should be in the top 10 list
Best dancer of today's generation.
You Rock My World! JD Rocks
Hell No the He suppose to me in the 10 list not 30 -_- I argue with the person who said jennifer lopez needs to me in 6 or 4 place List is Dumb
Sophia lucia is amazing! She can do 56 pirouttes and hold the world record! Also she's a amazing dancer! She has flawless technique and is really graceful. I could watch her dance for hours! If you don't believe me you watch her dancing to Titanium (i think her version is better then Autumn's-it definitely has better choreography) or Requim. She is my favorite dancer and a really sweet girl. She deserves to be number 1!
This girl is amazing she is so flexible and has the world record for pirouettes she is an amazing dancer who has a great career ahead of her
How is madonna ahead of Sophia? This list is based on who is more famous rather than who actually is a better dancer!
Hello people! You try doing 2 turns she can do 72!
Beyonce Knowles needs to be Ranked Higher she's been in the Game and Music Industry Since the 90's with her Girl Group Destiny's Child now Beyonce as a Soloist now she Evolved into a Artiste and a Artist that has both Talents deserves to be in the top 5 not only was Beyonce Born with a Beautiful Singing Voice and can Hit High Notes very Powerful with a Voice that can Span Three Octaves Belting Soulful Song live on stage but Beyonce was also bless with another Talent which is Dance and let's face it Beyonce can Dance very well look at a Collection of her Music Videos she is a Wonderful Dancer that can Sing Great as well she is Virtuoso.
The queen bee always stings. As early as before age 12 she was already a good dancer. Her stage presence moves many. She really deserves the tittle 'Princes Of Pop'. Her most famous dance music videos like Single Ladies, Run The World, Beautiful Liar (featuring Shakira) are one of the best in pop history.
Oh come on, she should be in the top five. I mean shakira is only good at one type of dancing which is belly dancing. but beyonce can do belly dancing very well (look at the video for beautiful liar) and can also do lots of other dance styles as well.
Beyonce is one of the best female dancers of all time the way she moves her body is amazing... She really shows how good of a dancer she is in her "Dance for You" music video; she needs to be ranked higher!
Adam should be in the top 10, he dances like a boss!, he puts everything in his dancing and his moves are just INCREDIBLE!, you can't just turn your head while watching him performing or you'll miss a good thing like seriously ADAM IS THE BEST EVER!, hands down.
Adam Sevani should be in the top 12, people just don't know who he is.. He is in the Step Up movies and also has a dance battle with Miley Cyrus on YouTube.
AKA moose from The Step Up movies search his name on YouTube and be impressed
Adam is definitely the best dancer alive. It's only he is not as famous as most other dancers but when it comes to dancing, that guy slays most. I think he deserves the proper recognition and maybe the Top 10 lists can be rewritten.
Lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls. She can sing and dance. She won in Dancing With The Stars. She has a unique technique in dancing. Her body is so flexible. She is one of the best female dancer in this new generation, a full package! Watch her dancing skills on her music video such as Whatever you like, Wet, Poison plus her sexy moves in Buttons. Watch Nicole and Derek Hough @youtube! She's an amazing dancer!
He is an emerging dancing star from India. Now he is rocking in Oriya film industry by his fantastic dance moves. He is such a dancer who can do all dance moves in the world perfectly. He was the finalist of India's got talent, he had done dance in airtel 3g & recently he has made his debut in oriya film industry through the film "mu premi mu pagala" where he has done fantastic moves. If you don't know him then search him on youtube. He is a brilliant dancer. Just wait. The day is coming soon when we will see him among top 10 or even in top 5. ng top 10 or even in top 5.
He is one of the emerging talents in India... He deserves 2 be in the top 10. He is rocking in Oriya film industry by his fantastic dance moves.
I am pretty sure that he is the only man who can beat Michael jackson or any global dancers. He needs only a break to reach at the top.
Best looking and popping dancer in the world...
Fantastic dance moves
Again, young people don't have a clue. This girl could dance just list Miss Powell
Kenzie is such a great dancer and always was forced to follow maddie now she is a great singer I love kenzie
Mackenzie, you were adorable on Dance Moms, I feel horrible that Maddie was always such a jerk to you. Now, I'm glad you're going down your own path and I hope you keep putting one foot in front of the other.
She is a great dancer and role model also Maddie gets everything
Improves all her move loved as best friends
She's great in Hip - hop and ballet dancer
She is featured in Step up
Jenna is just an amazing dancer. Loved her in Take The Lead and Step Up and I think she's deserves to be in the top ten.
I went dance like you
Autumn miller is my inspiration and I love her and is amazing a dancing
She is just... amazing. not just her technique, but also the emotion she portrays. And apart from dance, she still keeps a normal life of a cheerful, sweet girl --- watch her videos on AutiesFreestyleFriday if you wanna know.
Best dancer I have ever seen I wish I could meet her
She is such an inspirational dancer should be #1
Check him out in a movie with Shirley Temple. Not much documentation with him as he danced in the 1930s and being an African American there was much discrimination at that time. Story was he once danced up broadway.
He should be number 1! Nobody can beat him not even Mj no disrespect. I'm 34 so I know. Hammer is the pope of dancing. He was in better shape than mj (RIP no disrespect) now come on. I'm pretty sure mj couldn't do some of hammers moves! Hammer was the man and will always be the # 1 dancer. Here's how it should at least be
#4 Bobby brown
#3 james brown
#1 Mc hammer.
Just focus on top 3. Plus Mj isn't called king of dancing. He's called king of pop where mc should be king of rap. (Kinda hard to try to compare two genres of music) But who sad we were comparing. The point is hammer is better mj. Mj-king Hammer-pope
He's the greatest of all time. Mj is the best but hammer
Is better. He was a natural mj got someone to teach him
Mj a close second. VERY CLOSE
Number one no doubt he brought rappers into the dancing world ill bet even M Jackson would agree, no one compares to Hammer.
Mc hummer said in a interview that Michael Jackson is the greatest dancer ever
Natalia is a great dancer and always has been
Natalia is amazing and very beautiful dancer, singer and actress
Kendall should be at least top 20 or right behind Chloe Kendall is way better then all of them my opinion but rank up these votes for Kendall please she deserves more!
She works very hard on dance moms and proves she can dance
She is amazing and deserves to be in at least top 20
She should be on this list
Katy perry is talentless
Should be higher compared to the depressing list we've got at the top.
I LIKE HIS MOVES HE IS SOME HOW GOOD. ALPHA MOSHA
