Best Dancers In Ghana
In Ghana, we have a lot of people who dance to the rhythm of songs like afrobeats and hip-hop. Dancing has been very influential in our communities.

Some of these institutions are Afrozig Movement, Toni’s Dance Studio, Kizomba Ghana, Dance Academy Ghana, Vivies Dance Factory East Legon and a lot more. They are have one aim; to make you the best dancer.
Ghana is really blessed with talented dancers. In the late 90s and early 2000s we used to have the likes Terry Bonchaka and Slim Buster rocking the stage with dance moves and freestyles. A lot of people began mimicking their moves to showcase their talent. These dancers even went ahead to invest in dance skills which have been spreading to foreign countries.
So with that in mind, let’s take a look at the best dancers in Ghana.

Second on the list is Incredible Zigi.
This would be a topic to be debated on. That’s because some people rate Incredible Zigi over Dancegod Llyod whilst others favour Dancegod ahead of Incredible Zigi. This article is placing Dancegod ahead of Zigi due to some facts which would be discussed later.Michael Amofa popularly known as Incredible Zigi was born on 17th October 1994.he is a professional dancer and a choreographer.

Number one on the list is Dancegod Lloyd.
This would differ or contradict with a lot of people’s thought. But this is decision made based on a few reasons. But if you have other thoughts too you can share with us in the comment section below.Laud Anoo Konadu is the birth name of Dancegod Lloyd. He was born on 25th May 1992. He is a graduate of PRESEC, Legon. He is the Cofounder of the Dance with Purpose Academy in Accra. This Academy has also been set up in the USA and Dubai. I selected Dancegod Llyod as first on the list because of some achievements he has. These includes signing deals with brands, featuring music videos and others. He featured in the original music video of Beyoncé’s ‘Already’. This song also featured Shatta Wale and Major Lazor in 2019. So with all these coming together I decided to pick Dancegod as the best dancer in Ghana currently.
