Dancing has been a part of Filipino history long before the arrival of modern hip-hop music. We Filipinos love to show off our groove, especially when we have the talent for it. Eventually Filipinos gravitated towards the hip-hop style we’ve adopted from the US.
Naturally, we Pinoys owned that scene with some of our very own homegrown dancing talent.
Here are the most popular female celebrity dancers of 2017:

Niana is one half of the Ranz and Niana dance duo alongside her brother Ranz Kyle. This social media entertainer has around 2.6 million followers on Instagram and 90K followers on Twitter.
