A sensational actress, an international singer, and the winner of Miss World beauty pageant in 2000, this diva with a multitude of flairs has become a household name. With her commendable performance as "Alex Parrish" in Quantico, an American television drama thriller series, Priyanka has set the bar really high. At her early teenage, Chopra moved to the U.S. She attended schools in Newton, Massachusetts, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, after a stop in Queens, New York. While in Massachusetts, she participated in several theatre productions and studied Western classical music, choral singing, and Kathak dance.

Here is the list featuring some of the best dance performances by Priyanka Chopra. With the variety of genres she emits her prowess in, you will find it no less than a treat to watch and be awed by this elegant "heroine" of Bollywood.

Ram Chahe Leela - Goliyon Ki Rasleela, Ram Leela

The sensuous balled with lyrics relating to the love affair of two lead characters, the choreography stands out as an artistic blend of western styles with Indian folk and classical dance elements.

Pinga - Bajirao Mastani

The song beautifully highlights Marathi folk dance of 'Pinga' in which married women participate on the occasion of Mangalagaur festival. This song would be remembered as one of the most astounding reference to an Indian folk dance form.

Aaj Ki Raat - Don, The Chase Begins Again

The music and dance in the song will take you back to the retro-disco club era. Priyanka amazingly yields a sumptuous cabarette grace, simultaneously with her well timed disco routines.

Darling - 7 Khoon Maaf

Inspired from the Russian Red Army choir, the song has many graceful tints of Russian folk dances. With the subtle shades of Slavik and Polish Trojak, the sequences remind of 'Kamarinskaya' with some steps of 'Barynya' type dance performed by male dancers in the centre.

Dostana - Desi Girl

If you are looking for a song with typical Bollywood steps and enthusiasm, this is your title. The choreography is a delightful mix of club and contemporary dances, infectious to get even the most languid ones, tapping their feet and shaking their derrieres.

Lal Dupatta - Mujhse Shaadi Karogi

With a troop of dancers in resplendent traditional costumes following the protagonist lady, the song choreographed in west Indian folk forms and contemporary progressions, weaves a colourful and winsome romantic spell.

Anjaana Anjaani Ki Kahani - Anjaana Anjaani

This song is one hell of a marvel with its lounge party theme and sassy "dance to the beat" steps. An enjoyable cocktail of disco, new age and contemporary Bollywood styles.
