  1. I saw this list and it really concerned me. There are people missing on this list that changed the face of dance such as Bob Fosse, Gene Kelly, The Nicholas Brothers, My father Don”Campbellock”Campbell who created the first Street Dance Locking which is 45 years old and still going strong worldwide, Ken Swift, CrazyLegs, Boogaloo Sam, Poppin Pete, Tyrone Proctor, Willi Ninjas, David Winters, Toni Basil, Alvin Ailey, Fred Astraire, Cyd Charisse, Mr. Bojangles

    I understand this list is based on opinions. But certain people you don’t omit no matter what. Because their contributions were legendary. Absolutely legendary.

    Besides, you have Michael Jackson as #1 yet he got his moves from my Father and his group The Lockers,, Boogaloo SamThe electric boogaloos, Jeffrey Daniels and more.

    Just food for thought!!

  2. 8 and 10 can’t be in this list! bring a specialist in dance to make these kind of lists. Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers deserve to kick some here. Michael Jackson was innate dancer so he deserves it, Mikhail, Fred and Gene even praised him!!!! who of the others got that? none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
