"le plus mal and le pire"

"le plus mal and le pire"

When ı had a look at the irregular adverbs forms I saw that the irregular form of "le plus mal" was "le pire"
isn't it incorrect? Because when I investigated it I saw that it must be "Le pis"

C'est lui qui danse le plus mal   He's the one who dances the worst. (I think this is correct)
C'est lui qui danse le pis   He's the one who dances the worst. (I think this is correct)

C'est lui qui danse le pire  He's the one who dances the worst. (I think this must be incorrect)

Am I wrong? 
please help

Hi Ozan,

You can only say correctly -

C'est lui qui danse le plus mal 

You might say -

C'est le pire danseur que je connaisse = He is the worst dancer I know

'Pis' is little used, except in the expressions -

tant pis! = never mind!

ça va de mal en pis = It is going from worse to worse

I hope this helps!
