Here is the list of Top 10 Most Famous Dancers In History
10. Fred Astaire
Fred Astaire is an american dancer and choreographer, widely regarded as the most influential dancer in human history. He almost had a pair of dance appearances with his sister Adele Astaire. It was in the 1920s, and Fred and Adele both fascinated the London crowd. Though Fred started to be superior and outshining in dancing over Adele, she continued to support him for further growth and passionate rage. By 1930, Fred was considered the best among the performers, as Robert Benchley said, “I don’t think I’m going to plunge the country into battle by claiming Fred is the world’s greatest tap-dancer.”
Shakira, perhaps the most famous for her hip and belly dance, which it seems almost impossible to do. Born in Barranquilla, she is a Colombian dancer and singer who started her career with Magia and Peligro. Nevertheless, her initial career stages were too labour-intensive, as she was not quite competitive with her results when commercially put forward. Since publishing her sixth and seventh albums Fijacion Oral, Volumen Uno and Oral Fixation, Volume Two in 2005, she continued to pursue success throughout her career. She is now known as a celebrity not only for the music she launches, but also for the amazing hip-shaking dance capabilities.
8. Mikhail Baryshnikov
Mikhail Nikolayevich Baryshnikov is an American dancer and choreographer, well known as Mikhail. He is considered one of the 20th century’s greatest and most famous ballet dancers. His initial days were very laborious, as his father was not very friendly with him. Baryshnikov’s dad was a military lieutenant, owing to whom his behavior and habits also resembled his personal life. Baryshnikov, though, learned a lot more from him and took the role model for his life as an inspiration. Moreover, after his appearances in many productions, his flawless performance in ballet dance was recognized at the American Ballet Theatre.
