What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the names Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Shakira? You most likely think “singer” or “performer”, and you’re right. All of these ladies are amazing singers and their stage presence is unlike any other. Their shows are always awesome and their performances are guaranteed to make the crowd go wild. Guess what else these ladies are good at? Dancing! That’s right, we don’t think about this too often, but quite a few of our favorite singers are also great dancers. So today, let’s take a look at the top 9 female singers who can dance.
1. Lady Gaga
Did you know that Gaga has a background in the performance theater? That’s right, this lady attended the musical theater training conservatory at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. She was basically groomed to become a killer performer.
We first noticed her when she was still a member of Destiny’s Child and she definitely made a lasting impression. People were obsessed with her way before she ventured off on her own. Her live performances are always dynamic, exciting and fun to watch. She’s a star on her own but she’s also amazing when doing choreographed routines with her backup dancers. It’s not just sex appeal that she lures us in with, it’s her creativity, individuality and style that keeps us wanting more.
3. Britney Spears
It’s hard to tell weather Britney is just naturally talented when it comes to dancing, or if it’s the countless hours of training that have really paid off. But if you’ve seen any of her music videos there should be no doubt in your mind that she’s the queen of choreographed routines. She slays it every single time.
Shakira can dance and everybody knows it. Her moves are fierce to the core and it’s a pleasure watching her dance. You never know what she’s going to do, but you can tell that it’s going to be awesome. And as you all know, her hips don’t lie. This girl can shake it up like no other.
5. Jennifer Lopez
Whether you knew Jennifer from back in the day, when she was still just Jenny from the block, or if you’ve come to know her as the icon she is these days, one thing is certain – this lady has got the moves. She works it hard and she’s considered to be one of the defining female figures of the 21st century RnB dance.
6. Iggy Azalea
Iggy Azalea is known to stir up a crowd with both her lyrics and her dance moves. She knows how to twerk and she’s not ashamed of it. In fact, if you ever want to see her moves, go to her live shows, she’s known to get down with her dancers and shake that booty.
7. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj doesn’t really do many choreographed routines, but somehow we all know that if you just bumped into her in the club you’d be impressed with her moves. Perhaps it’s because when she does dance her sex appeal quadruples.
8. Janet Jackson
The legend. The icon. The woman who inspired a rhythm nation. Incredible dance moves clearly run in the Jackson family. Her ability to express herself through not only song but also dance is mind blowing and it’ll be hard to find someone as amazing as her for generations to come.
Rihanna has the whole package – the voice to sing, the body to dance, the confidence to perform and the talent to make it all work. She’s great at choreographed stage routines, but she’s also not adverse to twerking it out when the occasion calls for it and inspiration strikes.
