Best Female Dancers in the World

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

She is the best belly dancer in the world, the greatest female entertainer, stage performer her dance is absolutely top-notch. Besides her outstanding voice and vocal range, her live performances are probably one of the best. Like a livewire full of energy, enthusiasm, and the crowd also enjoys it. Overall she is the best women singer, dancer everything.

I love Shakira, and to be honest, I think she deserves this spot a lot. On the other hand, Lindsay Stirling is an amazing dancer, and she could have come in here as well. I can't say who I think is better.

2 Beyoncé 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... read more

I love Beyoncé Knowles. She is an entertainer who excels in both singing and dancing. With her three-octave vocal range and rare, sexy dance moves, she can do no wrong. Not only is she talented, but she is also beautiful. I have loved Beyoncé ever since her time in Destiny's Child back in the '90s. Now as a solo artist, she has become even better. She is a Hollywood celebrity, known for her impressive dance skills.

No female has made more memorable dances than Beyoncé. She has made Single Ladies, which was the first major dance craze ever. She is also more hardworking and skilled than Shakira, JLo, and Sridevi, so she should be number 1.

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

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

I think her dance is sexy and well-executed. I love her.

Jen is AMAZING! In fact, she is the best ever. Better than everyone else. Why number 3? It is number 1! Love ya.

P.S. Big fan

4 Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears, born on December 2, 1981, is an American former singer and actress. She was born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. As a child, she performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows, such as "The Mickey Mouse Club," before signing with Jive... read more

She is perfect. She has a sexy voice, dances very well, is beautiful and hot, is a good actress, and her music videos are amazing. Some of them have reached billions. She is the queen of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She plays basketball. Her new boyfriend, Sam, is handsome. Her children are cuties. Her songs are at the top of legendary pop songs. I love her. If you can't accept her imperfections when she shaved her head and when she was criticized as a bad mom, you can't get to love her with her success and perfections.

Why isn'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 Slave 4 You session, and Toxic, Me Against The Music. She danced better than her crew. That's so rare.

5 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.

Ciara should have been number one. No one in the music industry can dance better than her, besides Michael Jackson. Whoever did this did not know what they were doing! No one is better than her! She's going to always be #1!

Ciara should be number 1 because she has topped every style of dancing, even styles that male dancers do!

It would really make your fans happy if you keep dancing like you used to.

You're the best, girl.

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

How Madonna and 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 backup 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, and Jenna Dewan (another ex-Janet Jackson backup dancer). Paula Abdul was Janet's choreographer on the Control album. Of every artist mentioned on this list, Janet Jackson more than the others is linked to various names through her influence or working relationship. That alone says something. Give it up for the Queen.

7 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... read more
8 Zendaya Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman is an American actress, singer and producer. She began her career as a child model and backup dancer, before gaining prominence for her role as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up. Her film roles include supporting parts in the musical drama The Greatest... read more

I wasn't surprised when I saw Zendaya at number 10. Love all her episodes in Dancing with the Stars. Love you, and love the fact you don't easily give up and use all your energy. Love you, Zendaya.

I am not surprised that she is on this page. She is so amazing, and I am a big fan of Zendaya. You work it, girl. Team Zendaya. Who's with me?

Zendaya! I hope you see this, but you are really awesome!

9 Sridevi Kapoor Sridevi Kapoor was an Indian film actress who worked in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada films. She died in 2018.

Sri is the best dancer. She is a very nice dancer.

I love her graceful dance steps. She is the best.

Sri is the best dancer. She was a great dancer.

10 Hema Malini Hema Malini ("Hema Malini Chakravarty") (born 16 October 1948, Ammankudi (Orathanadu), Tamil Nadu, India) is an Indian actress, director, producer, dancer and politician.
The Contenders
11 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.

She is the best dancer in the world who can dance to any beat perfectly. She is not only the best dancer but also the most beautiful lady in India after Aishwarya Rai and also the best actress in India.

Waiting for your comeback in Bollywood.

Madhuri Dixit should be number 1! And I'm American. Her grace and beauty on the dance floor are unbeatable. No one has come close to matching her!

Her expressions, her grace, her beauty are all just amazing. When she dances, she steals my heart.

12 Lisa Manoban

She's literally amazing at dancing, rapping, and singing. If you look at her dance covers and BLACKPINK's dancing videos, they're all so talented. She once said in their movie Light Up the Sky, "I have been dancing since I was four." Imagine having that much courage, coming to South Korea from Thailand without knowing the local language and basically anything. She's such a huge role model for all talented Asian girls who have big dreams. She rightfully deserves her position as the main dancer in BLACKPINK. Queen for real.

13 Aaliyah Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born on January 16th 1979 and died August 25th 2001. She was a dancer, an actress and an R&B singer. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised in Detroit, Michigan and died at Marsh Harbour, Bahamas... read more

Aaliyah should be higher than this! She was a brilliant dancer. She didn't even need to put effort into dance. She just naturally had that rhythm and ability to flow. I love Aaliyah. She was really talented and special. Aaliyah could sing, dance, model, and she wasn't trashy about it. She was just a natural.

I've seen lots of different uncut, backstage, off-tape videos of Aaliyah, and she seemed to be so laid back and cool. You can just tell she had a beautiful personality and soul.

I wish she was still alive. I think, why did she have to die? But it's life, and all we have is her legacy and music to remember her by. Wow, what a legend though - a legendary dancer and singer. RIP Baby Girl xx

14 Katrina Kaif Katrina Kaif is an English actress who works in Hindi films. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics for her acting prowess, she has established herself in Bollywood and is one of India's highest-paid actresses.

She is really graceful, and I can't keep my eyes off her when she is dancing. She makes every song millions of times better with her dancing.

She is just an amazing person. She went to India without any fear and stood up to all the haters. Her hard work really pays off.

It is very difficult for any foreigners to catch on to the culture of India, but Katrina is not scared at all. She is the best British Indian dancer in the world.

She is the best dancer. Many people say Michael Jackson and Hritik Roshan are angels of dance. Just like both, Katrina Kaif is the angel of female dancers.

15 Shriya Saran

Shriya Saran, an elegant dancer with grace and energy, stole all the audience's hearts with her scintillating performances. Even other celebrities were eagerly awaiting her performance at any of the events. So overall, Shriya Saran is the best of all.

The Grace Kelly of India. An incredibly hardworking master of dance. Put her on Broadway, and she shines just as bright as she does back home.

The one and only best female dancer is Shriya. Her grace, perfect body language, and attitude are awesome. Great artist too.

16 Paula Abdul Paula Julie Abdul is an American singer-songwriter, dancer, choreographer, actress and television personality.
17 Jenna Dewan Jenna Lee Dewan is an American actress, businesswoman and dancer. She started her career as a backup dancer for Janet Jackson, and later worked with artists including Pink, Missy Elliott, and Christina Aguilera.

She's a universal dancer. I bet she can dance almost all types of dances. She's sexy and amazing.

18 Kim Hyoyeon

She is the best. She can do all styles with so much passion. All her determination and power encouraged me and saved my life. I love her so much.

The people ahead of her aren't better, they're just more popular.

19 Natalia Oreiro
20 Maddie Ziegler Madison Nicole Ziegler is an American dancer, actress, author and model. She was initially known for appearing in Lifetime's reality show Dance Moms from 2011 until 2016.

I think she was the BEST dancer on Dance Moms and has an excellent personality. She also starred in Sia's music video Chandelier. I believe she can achieve great things in this world!

Since her days on Dance Moms, she gives people so much joy whenever she dances.

Go team Maddie! You are right. She should be number one or in the top ten.

21 Josephine Baker
22 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.
