Dance music artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good dance music bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top dance music bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Dance groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all dance music bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest dance bands of all time, since the most famous dance artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best dance music.

You can click on the dance band names to see more information about that particular notable dance group. If they're near the top of the best dance music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top dance music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the dance band names themselves.

List artists range from Britney Spears to Miley Cyrus. Help out your favorites on this list by upvoting them. If you're a fan of Rihanna or Katy Perry, make sure you give them some love.

All important, significant and iconic names in dance music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

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.

Re-rank this thing so that the order fits your opinions, then make it votable and share it with your social network. {#nodes}
