    In all seriousness, I had a coach tell me that your favorite dancer better be yourself. Since so much practice is done into a mirror, you better enjoy watching yourself. :D

    Yes, Allison Lynn is an ice dancer. You are correct! If you know great dancer like her you can post her/his name along with the reason why do you like her/him.

    By inference and extrapolation, at some point, one's favorite instructor/coach would
    be oneself. After all, no one knows (or should know) you better than yourself.

    Michael Jackson all the way! He is a total performer. I like his smooth moves when dancing.

    Sylvie Guillem and Alessandra Ferri, bliss and gorgeousity <3 Love them for their legs, feet, extension, musicality... but most of all I love Alessandra's exquisite emotional range. Her Juliet still makes me cry to this day.

    Love Osipova! Did you know she started out as a rhythmic gymnast? I believe a back injury forced her to make a career change. Unfortunate for her gymnastic dreams, but glorious for the dance world.

    Yes Osipova is awesome. Her moves are very graceful.

    Laurainesnelling, I noticed that Fred Astaire was given as an answer, but my favorite entertainer in part because of her dancing is Ginger Rogers. I’m interested if people would consider Ginger and Fred’s dancing to be ballroom dancing. One of my favorite scenes of them dancing is “Too Much Mustard” from The Story of “Vernon and Irene Castle.”

    MJ is the evergreen dancer. I loved his performance.

    Agree! Agree! Agree! Sylvie Guillem has my heart always. I also really like the choreographers Mats Ek and Pina Bausch (I know the question was for dancers, but I just can't help myself.)
