* The 1993 movie ''Film/OnlyTheStrong'' was perhaps the introduction of many action fans to the art of Capoeira and starred [[IronChefAmerica Marc Dacascos]] as a Green Beret who has to clean up his hometown using the aforementioned art, eventually fighting a BigBad who uses the same style.

* Just look out for someone doing a Cossack dance in an old cartoon - there ''will'' be butt-kicking.

* Middle East/North Africa: There is the ancient Egyptian martial art known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tahtib tahtib]], aka Egyptian stick fencing, which remains a valid fighting technique but has also evolved into a form of stylized dance (often performed for tourists by groups of men in the southern part of the country, even though the martial art is mixed-gender).

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Arya Stark is trained by Syrio Forel to be a "water dancer", a FragileSpeedster kind of warrior. Syrio himself demonstrates ImplausibleFencingPowers in the first book by holding off [[ConservationOfNinjutsu half a dozen armed and armored guards]]...with [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter a wooden practice sword]]. RealityEnsues quickly, though, as they stop coming at him one by one and opt for a ZergRush.

* One of the "late-game" characters in ''RPGWorld'' basically has character class "breakdancer". And it's pretty lethal too.

** It's implied that he does a more subtle version during earlier battles against tough foes. At least twice, Dresden has heard him humming "Froggy Goes A-Courtin'" under his breath right before a big battle, implying that he's using it to time his movements.

* Many ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games also have a Dancer class, although only the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia first]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral two]] series allow them to fight properly without glitches. Even then, Dancers have far inferior stats compared to other classes, as their real purpose is to grant allies another turn. ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' brings back the fighting Dancer with Olivia, and thanks to unlimited reclassing, she can actually fight on par with other units, even when reclassed back to a Dancer. And ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has Azura whose class is [[MagicMusic Singer]]. Although she's more of a songstress she's also a dancer, she uses flashy spinning and twirling while wielding a [[BladeOnAStick lance]] in her battle animations.
