    • I have been tryn to find Mike, we use to dance together back in the day I found him in a teen club back in the day when we were kids a brought him back to my side of town and eventually we went on tours and head lined our own shows… Please contact me if any one has any info on home my Facebook is Pope Smith I’m in stone mountain(or Atlanta)

  1. This article is dumb! They purposely ignored other big street dances such as Vogue and Waacking. You can tell this article was written by someone either still not educated enough to talk about street dance or someone just homophobic.

  2. 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!!

    • Not really sure that Campbellock is your father but anyway. The majority of Jackson’s moves were from Pop’N’Taco though, get to know.
      Also the article states about dancers of 2010 (I think it’s written in big black letters) who got most of their fame from YouTube. It doesn’t say “Legendary Street Dancers”.
      I can agree on Non Stop because he really got big from YouTube but they should’ve mention his teacher, Waveomatic (RIP).
      And I can easily list P-Lock on this list because the guy is a gem, his locking technique is unique!

  3. wtf how can “Du-Shaunt Stegall” be one of the best street dancers of the world….all that happend because a lot of views?
    aspecially when popping john under him…. how????
    that kid will never survive on a battle with popping john or mike song or hook or tighteyez or mr wiggles or daniel cloud…or many dancers that not mantioned here
    i wondering who choose and decided those dancers to be on the top of 5 of the world…
    i believe popping john , salah and less twins worth of those top 5

  4. Dig deeper than what the Internet or television has to offer. We know people who were doing all those moves before these guys were doing them. They just got to showcase them on a larger screen first. Explore and then rewrite this article please.

    • Exactly like the story with “Moonwalk” and Michael Jackson.
      He learned it from Pop N’ Taco (when he was his teacher) as well as the Snake Style technique.
      It’s just that Jackson had a wider audience because B-Boys were looked down back then.

  5. Well, you can tell this author knows nothing about dance. He listed breaking twice…. once as b-boying, then as breaking. and he says, “the world famous style is the modern street dance and anyone can easily pick this up. ” Seriously? So yeah, i’m not taking this article seriously. Forget that no mention of Cyrus, Tight Eyez, or anyone else from Europe besides Les Twins. I know it’s his opinion and there are alot of awesome dancers who can be in a top 5, but again, not taking it seriously.

  6. This is not right… Salah was huge before YouTube. Every popper knows him just like they know Boogaloo Shrimp, Shabba Doo, Pop N’ Taco and other legends. YouTube just helped him reach the audience outside of the dancing community. Though from everyone on the list, he’s the most known name in the dance scene.
