Dance movies have been around since the inception of film: the best dance movies manage to make the audience care about the characters and the art of dance. From the can-can films on Nickelodeons to the modern dance movies that fuse every style, the best dancing movies are only as good as the dancers that perform in them.

What are the greatest dance movies ever made? These are the best dance movies as decided by you, whether you want to contribute your own list to include that ballet movie you love or you just want to vote up the super popular breakdance movie from last year, it's up to you. You can't have a great dance movie without a great soundtrack, so also check out our Greatest Soundtracks of All Time List.
