The Contenders: Page 2

21 Eleanor Powell

Greatest dancer ever... She was Born to Dance!

Young people don't have a clue, first of all you had to dance even before you could act. Eleanor Powell was the best...

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!

The best of he best. Should be number one. No female tapped danced lke her.
Fact check. Watch her video and see for yourself!

23 Les Twins

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 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.

They are just so talented and original mans. They dance with their heart and they feel the music

Les twins really needs to be first on the list, but Michael Jackson did it alone and made the entire world recognize him. But of course he was a singer as well. But les twins has yet to show as well cause they're still young

27 Adam Sevani

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

He should be by Michael Jackson he's one of the best dancers ever

28 Svetlana Zakharova

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.

29 Rudolf Nureyev

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.

30 Sophia Lucia

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! - Frog

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!

31 Paula Abdul Paula Abdul Paula Julie Abdul is an American singer-songwriter, dancer, choreographer, actress and television personality.

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... - Alexandr

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!
