    My take:

    1.a She dances better than me
    1.b She dances better than I do


    2.a. She sings more beautifully than him
    2.b. She sings more beautifully than he does

    In the first sentences, verb is compared with a noun. Her dance is compared to me. Apples to Oranges. The second sentences make the comparison correctly.
    She/me would be correct when the doer is compared. ... is better dancer than ...
