Ever since John Travolta made his signature moves in 1977’s Saturday Night Fever, moviegoers can’t get enough of male flesh dancing on the big screen. In more recent times we’ve seen the explosion of the Step Up series and in honour of the release of Step Up 4: Miami Heat on the 3rd December we’ve decided to compile a list of the hottest male dancers to date, with impressive dance moves and a hot body to match, what’s not to like?

Nora persuades Tyler to team up with her for a major class project, gaining him the chance to earn a scholarship. Matters become complicated when Tyler and Nora realize they’re falling in love.
