Can you become a really good dancer without a teacher?

Question by The Beauty Smile: Can you become a really good dancer without a teacher?
I actually I’m my own teacher… I am a hip hop dancer. I’ve never really had a dance teacher, but I practice diligently everyday, sometimes even at school between classes. I am always told that I’m a really good dancer by everyone, even some people who are almost professional. I do believe in myself greatly, and most predict a nice future for me in dance and film.

PS: I’ve never been to more than a week of dance class.

Thanks!
