The list includes all new dance bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of dance music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into dance music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good dance bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent dance bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best dance bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest dance musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular dance bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
