Bobby Brown or Usher or Michael Jackson?
Give your opinions..........
It has to be Michael Jackson. When he dances, its mesmerizing.
Usher and Timberlake take their dance moves from MJackson.
As for the ladies (permit me). It will be between Beyonce, JLo and Ciara.
Michael jackson! without any doubt....i think it shld nt be a doubt to any1 else aswell....
What kind of dancer?
Its very broad if you think about it.
If I have to choose between the three, I would say Michael Jackson - however, if I could choose anyone, I would choose Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire
None of those! Pavlova...the ballerina. The inspiration for my perfume.
Michael Jackson had the potential to be one of the greatest, but he took a wrong turn when he started to believe his own myth and thought he could do it all alone, without the help of expert choreographers and dance teachers.
Gene Kelly for mine.
I'm totally with Marisa on this one Gene Kelly was by far the best.
I find it hard to believe that Michael Jackson is dominating this hub. Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, any of the women from that era. Come on guys!!
MJ was great. I've never seen anyone create moves the way that he did. I guess he would have to be number one, but Gene Kelly was also super. He also had a lot of physically challenging moves in his dancing.
I'm with Lita. Anna - I was raised on ballet. As for random any other kind ... I'm pretty hot on the dance floor. I can shake my green booty with the best of 'em
Michael Jackson changed the world of dancing with the moonwalk but I don't know if he is the best dancer...He is no doubt a legend for his singing and dancing. Anyway, I can't decide, great question though!
IM ABOUT 42 AND I WAS PRACTICING THE MOONWALK AS FAR BACK AS 1981 AND I DIDNT SEE MICHAEL JACKSON DO THE MOONWALK UNTIL MARCH OF 83. JAMES BROWN WAS THE FIRST TO PERFECT THE MOONWALK GOING IN A FORWARD DIRECTION WHICH HE CALLED THE CAMEL WALK WHICH WAS INVENTED BY HIM IN 1967. AND BEFORE THAT HE DID A REVERSE MOONWALK WHILE HE WAS TWISTING HIS LEGS AT THE SAME TIME ON THE TAMI SHOW IN 1964 AT THE END OF THE SONG( OUT OF SIGHT).
Many young people seem to have little or no exposure to history these days. Michael Jackson is probably as far back as they go...
no, but I'm quite fond of most forms of dance, including ballet. I'm also rather fond of opera, however I am not an opera singer either.
You seriously look like a dancer in your photograph. Guess that's why I asked, lol.
I personally believe that Michael Jackson is or was the best dancer ever.
I don't know if he was guilty of any crime but he was a great talent.
Fred Astaire is the best ive seen but Michael Jackson comes a close second.
Fred and Michael take the cake but Michael's energy and modern moves....I would give it to him hands down!
Bob Fosse...who Michael got a lot of his moves from.
Also would add Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Twyla Tharp, Toni Basel...
Bill Clinton, undoubtedly
Obama is coming up fast, but Clinton danced his way out of innumerable lies and prevarications.
Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly -- you just can't beat them.
I would have to say Chris Brown is a famous R&B singer and great dancer as well as Omarion Grandberry who used to be a member of B2K, both are very talented and got their moves and inspiration from the late Micheal Jackson.
Can't pick just one!
Best female dancer: Shakira
Best male dancer: Mikhail Barishnikov
Dancing is such a beautiful thing...
Domenico da Piacenza or someone of that sort. Maybe some Dionysian even further back.
Michale Jackson was a pop choreographer of great energy and a fun guy to watch move, but I don't recall ever reading that he was a great student of the art of dance and, ultimately, "the best dancer of the world of all time." I'd say that the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and those sorts are rather the same sort of popular culture icons for their era.
EVERY BODY ON THIS SITE SO FAR SAY MIKE OR FRED ASTAIR WAS THE ALL TIME GREATEST DANCER BUT JAMES BROWN WAS LEFT OUT. IN 2007 BET PUT JAMES BROWN FIRST PLACE. I SAY JAMES BROWN AND MIKE WAS NECK TO NECK IF JAMES WASNT BETTER. JAMES BROWN PERFECTED THE MOONWALK
GOING IN A FORWARD DIRECTION WHILE MAKING HIS LEGS LOOK LIKE YHEY WERE GOING BACKWARDS ALSO JAMES BROWN DID THE ROBOT BEFORE MIKE DID HIS FIRST ROBOT. IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME GO TO(VIDEO) JAMES BROWN 1973 GOOD FOOT AND LOOK FOR HIM TO HAVE ON A BLACK HAT AND A BLACK OUTFIT
me cuz I buss a move like errry day!!!! fred astaire, michal berishnicough,gregory hines,fazon glover and micheal jackson
Brian Watson and Carmen, World Latin Champions for six years, undefeated. Rumba is an actual dance, what MJ does is not, and he can (and is) often copied. Try copying Brian and Carmen!
First let me express my joy on noticing that Lady Sorensen is back to these forums.
Have you ever heard about Rudolf Nureev ?
might look a bit "sissy" but there's something universal about that. It reminds me of "grace" which was the object of a recent thread.
Micheal Jackson of course. his feet movement was extraneously extravangant that is unmatchable
My picks of the best dancer of all time:
Best female Anna Pavlova
Best male - Rudolf Nureyve
wow - you can't just choose one - so many different dances so many different dancers -
personal favorites: Nijinsky, Nureyev, Plysetskaya, Barishnikov, Fonteyn, Judith Jamison, Alvin Ailey, Bo Jangles, Martha Graham, Katherine Dunham, Bob Fosse, Jerome Robbins, Cyd Charisse, Gene Kelley, Gregory Hines, Sammy Davis Jr. - could go on and on, forgotten names of more than I remember
great tango dancers too - Nestor Ray - and many others
to ask for one best - that's impossible to answer!

As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us. It may even change the way we view the world and hopefully for the better. For...

Why are people still fascinated with Michael Jackson?I grew up loving Michael Jackson, when he seemed to be a normal black man. When he turned white, wore shin guards and started sleeping with little boys (my opinion), I lost interest. He ended up a little, shriveled, drug addicted...

My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a kid toucher, bottom line. I loved Jackson's music when I was a kid, but when he started bleaching his skin and wearing shin guards, I realized something wasn't quite right with him. ADULTS SHOULD NOT SLEEP IN THE SAME BED WITH LITTLE CHILDREN.Am...
