* The opening titles of the sixth and seventh series of British sitcom ''2Point4Children'' had main character Ben dancing in the foreground, with the rest of the cast dancing across the screen while holding hands behind her.
* ''Series/TheArmstrongAndMillerShow''
* Each intro from ''Series/{{Blossom}}'' included her doing very 80s-90s dances with a big goofy smile on her face through the whole thing. And while the first season was just one long shot, it expanded into several small vignettes over the years.
* The end credits of ''Series/{{Bottom}}'' features the silhouettes of the main characters Eddie and Richie dancing, which, predictably, ends in violence.
* ''Series/ChouSeiKantaiSazerX'' ED. It falls somewhere between Dancing Theme and "exercise routine."
* ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' had several intros for different seasons, and all of them save season one had the main characters do a short dance.
* ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', which used three different {{Real Song Theme Tune}}s.



* The ED of several ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series.
** ''[[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger Kakuranger]]'', ''[[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Abaranger]]'' (with the {{Mooks}}), ''[[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Dekaranger]]'', ''[[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger Magiranger]]'', ''[[Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger Gekiranger]]'', ''[[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Go-onger]]'' (this one in several different versions), ''[[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Goseiger]]'', ''[[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters Go-Busters]]'', and ''[[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger Kyoryuger]]'' all have this type of theme.
** ''Kyoryuger'' deserves special mention for two reasons. Firstly, videos of fans doing the dance were shown during the ending credits for the second half of the series, and occasionally included "special guests" like the [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricanger Hurricangers]], [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Team Gaim]], and Creator/KenichiSuzumura and Creator/HiroshiKamiya. Secondly, the [[TheMovie movies]] had guest stars along for the ride: the Summer movie had the cast of ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' (whose movie was on a double billing), and ''Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters'' had all the returning Sentai characters -- not just the Go-Busters, but the Abarangers and [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Zyurangers]].
** [[Series/HikariSentaiMaskman Maskman]] had one as [[TheMovie its movie]]'s opening.

* ''Anime/DeathParade'' has a very peppy and catchy intro full of dancing. It's also [[BaitAndSwitchCredits incredibly misleading]] as the anime is rarely anything beyond bittersweet and is often just straight up dark and depressing.

** The second ending to the anime counts. It has SuperDeformed versions of Ino and Sakura swaying and shuffling to the music while singing.



* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has a dancing theme done in CGI for the first ending. It's especially popular in Japan. The outro was kept in the English dub, though translated. Several other intros and outros also feature dancing.

* Downplayed with ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'''s Season 1 opening themes, which feature the eponymous class [[EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop doing the endless loop]].
* ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'':
** ''[[Anime/{{Bakugan}} Bakugan New Vestroia]]'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6Ir3wAiL88 Bang! Bang! Bakugan!]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDl0E1dF--s Communication Breakdown]]
** ''Gundalian Invaders'' brings [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFzG_oDBzt4 Love The Music]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWbE84QNOZQ&feature=related Tan-Kyu-Shin]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** One of the ending themes, "My Pace", contains the FillerArc characters Claude, Nova and Ririn (in their cute little doll forms), along with series mascot Kon, doing a rather psychedelic dance to the incredibly infectious track, intercut with more "serious" still shots.
** The tenth OP, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih7Be_qodZA&fmt=18 "Shoujo S"]], has Rukia and Orihime dancing throughout the song. Matsumoto is also shown with them, but mostly during the silhouetted parts.
* Done in a funky and [[EarWorm incredibly catchy]] way via the ED of Manga/BloodBlockadeBattlefront to the beat of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DDtcsu1JEs Sugar Song and Bitter Step" by Unison Square Park]]
* ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'', the GagSeries spinoff crossover between ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' really drives home how utterly different it is from its usually dead serious source material with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvbaM-URygs 'Super Affection']], an ultra-genki song which, as well as showing the main heroines of each game dancing like idol singers, also featured [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters about half the characters]] in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} waving their arms in the air with huge smiles on their faces (except Hisui and Ren, [[TheStoic who don't smile]] and Assassin, [[RunningGag who's a cardboard cut-out]]).



* ''Anime/DaiMahouTouge'''s OP shows Punie performing an awfully cute little dance (including the [[VillagePeople YMCA]] hand gestures at one point), against a background of several well-known Japanese buildings burning bright against the night sky.
* Subverted somewhat in ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund''. The OP features a nearly-naked Mina dancing on top of a factory setting - until a railing breaks and Akira (who's been watching) dashes in and catches her inches from hitting the pavement. Considering how the series progresses, WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic of their relationship?
* ''Anime/DeathParade'' has a very peppy and catchy intro full of dancing. It's also [[BaitAndSwitchCredits incredibly misleading]] as the anime is rarely anything beyond bittersweet and is often just straight up dark and depressing.



* ''VideoGame/DinosaurKing'' had dancing closing themes for both seasons. They were incorporated into the dub openings.
* ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis!'''s ED, "Mirai Bowl" starts off with a SuperDeformed Eriko in a top hat and suit, and by the end features more or less all the main characters.
* ''Anime/{{Free}}'' has the 5 male main characters dancing in what appears to be a gay night club in the pool of the Taj Mahal.
* The first ending of ''Anime/FushigiBoshiNoFutagoHime'' is a rather more sedate ballroom dance.



* ''LightNovel/GoshuushouSamaNinomiyaKun'''s ED "Hooray, Hooray, Pom-Pom!" features dancing in both cheerleading outfits and towels. Can you ''feel'' the FanService?
* ''Manga/GugureKokkurisan'''s OP half-way through turns into one big, groovy disco party.
* "Kokoro Odoru", the second closing theme to ''Anime/SDGundamForce''. For those who are curious, this is a song in OsuTatakaeOuendan (the pottery master stage), a ''cheerleading'' game (which of course includes dances).
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' engages in a little of this during the second season's opening. True to its ReferenceOverdosed nature, one of the dance moves is [[Series/KamenRider Kamen Rider #1]]'s transformation pose.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS-4AsKSoWM 200% no Jumon,]] the first ending theme for ''Tottoko Hamutaro'' (''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}''). So cute dubbers kept it largely intact. The 2011 re-airing, ''Tottoko Hamutaro: Dechu'', was largely the same besides some new borders, episodes being shuffled around, and new theme music. The [[https://youtu.be/SMI5Wyi3bi0 new opening theme]] was a somewhat trippy one with neon sunflowers, bouncing buildings, and lots of adorable dancing hamsters.
* Despite its serious, romantic themes, ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'' (''Boys Over Flowers'') starts with a peppy, upbeat, '50s-tinged dance number, "Ordinary Sunday (Steppin' Out)".



* Several [=OPs=] and [=EDs=] of ''Anime/HareGuu'' have some form of dancing.
* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' has ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTS-3I17BGM&feature=related pole-dancing]]'' (slightly {{NSFW}}) by the girls.
* Both openings and at least one of the ending themes had this in the anime version of ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]''



* The first season of ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'' has some dancing in the ending theme that is patently impossible for most humans to imitate due to the speed at which the characters move.



* ''Manga/KillMeBaby'''s ending dance is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyWclvHgp5w nearly impossible to replicate in real life.]] Not that that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCNW1U1skN0 stops anyone from trying.]]
* [[AlternativeForeignThemeSong The opening of Italian dubs of anime]] are rather fond of this (and putting scenes of the characters singing and playing a song). They went all-out with ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'', where creative editing and syncing of anime scenes managed to make a dancer out of the ''[[http://youtu.be/9y877iq9Sbc?t=1m20s cat]]''.
* Most of the closing themes from ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}''. ''Niku 2x9 Rock 'n Roll'' and ''Kinniku Mambo'' are probably the best examples.
* ''kissxsis'' features a fun dance by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0J0x-i2csY the twins as the ED]], which is done in 3D animation opposed to the regular 2D animation style.



* ''Shin VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou ~Otome Tairan~'''s "Yuuki Rinrin" features lots of SuperDeformed dancing from its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.



* Episode 17 of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' featured a one-off opening theme with a SuperDeformed Ranka dancing.
* "Little Wish ~lyrical step~", the ED of the ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'''s first season, has a SuperDeformed Nanoha dancing in place while [[WeaselMascot Yuuno]] runs around the place.



* ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' uses very simple dance steps in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GioUWV3GNHw 1st ED]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLdZaFcG9r0 2nd ED]].



* ''The Melancholy of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'''s ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5G5bD2Do-k "Hare Hare Yukai,"]] proved wildly popular, spawning countless imitation videos and becoming a hit at conventions. A DVD special takes this one step further, eliminating all of the still-frames from the original ending, producing a single continuous dance sequence that covers the entire ending theme. It's been said by WordOfGod that the ending of ''[[Anime/HareGuu Haré+Guu Deluxe]]'' was an inspiration for it.
* ''Manga/{{Mitsudomoe}}'''s OP ends with the entire cast dancing in the schoolyard, with the triplets leading. It's also one of the few anime [=OPs=] mostly synchronized to the lips of its singers in the animation.
* ''LightNovel/{{MM}}!'''s ED, "More-more LOVERS!!", features Mio and Arashiko dancing on stage to the beat, and doing some simple dances against a backdrop before that.
* ''Manga/{{Moyashimon}}'' had dancing and bouncing CGI bacteria in its OP. (No, really.)



* ''Bacchikoi'', the ending theme of ''Anime/{{Naruto}}: Shippuden'''s Three-Tails Arc, features the three rookie kunoichi Sakura, Ino, and Hinata dancing to the song. Lee and Guy-sensei eventually persuade Naruto to join in.

* ''Popotan'' has two openings, both are pretty much the same, except one has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziNEjOi6uUo slightly more dancing]]. dancing dandelions, one of which is shown having trouble keeping up with the others.

* ''Popotan'' has two openings, both are pretty much the same, except one has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziNEjOi6uUo slightly more dancing]]. dancing dandelions, one of which is shown having trouble keeping up with the others.

They brought out the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjczJNefsME full version]], which has since spawned a collection of real life re-enactments and is also performed at live events. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT4EDPSCZYU&feature=related Here's one of them]].
* Despite its serious, romantic themes, ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'' (''Boys Over Flowers'') starts with a peppy, upbeat, '50s-tinged dance number, "Ordinary Sunday (Steppin' Out)".

''Manga/YakitateJapan'' features [[FunnyAfro afro-clad]] [[TheObiWan mentor]] Ken Matsuhiro [[GratuitousDiscoSequence disco-dancing]] in its opening, with shots of the cast performing second ED, "To All Tha Dreamers".
* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has
a dance that goes with the franchise dancing theme song "Geki! Teikokukagekidan," which the cast performed at pretty much all their live shows. There's also an {{ondo}} version used as the ending theme done in CGI for a few episodes.

the first ending theme for ''Tottoko Hamutaro'' (''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}''). So cute dubbers kept it largely intact. The 2011 re-airing, ''Tottoko Hamutaro: Dechu'', was largely the same besides some new borders, episodes being shuffled around, and new theme music. The [[https://youtu.be/SMI5Wyi3bi0 new opening theme]] was a somewhat trippy one with neon sunflowers, bouncing buildings, and lots of adorable dancing hamsters.
* ''VideoGame/DinosaurKing'' had dancing closing themes for both seasons. They were incorporated into the dub openings.
* Subverted somewhat in ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund''. The OP features a nearly-naked Mina dancing on top of a factory setting - until a railing breaks and Akira (who's been watching) dashes in and catches her inches from hitting the pavement.

* ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'''s OP, "DOWN TOWN", features pretty much the entire cast dancing. It makes a nice compliment to the FiveManBandConcert ending.
* ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis!'''s ED, "Mirai Bowl" starts off with a SuperDeformed Eriko in a top hat and suit, and by the end features more or less all the main characters.

* [[AlternativeForeignThemeSong The opening of Italian dubs of anime]] are rather fond of this (and putting scenes of the characters singing and playing a song).

* ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'', the GagSeries spinoff crossover between ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' really drives home how utterly different it is from its usually dead serious source material with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvbaM-URygs 'Super Affection']], an ultra-genki song which, as well as showing the main heroines of each game dancing like idol singers, also featured [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters about half the characters]] in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} waving their arms in the air with huge smiles on their faces (except Hisui and Ren, [[TheStoic who don't smile]] and Assassin, [[RunningGag who's a cardboard cut-out]]).

* Downplayed with ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'''s Season 1 opening themes, which feature the eponymous class [[EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop doing the endless loop]].
* ''Anime/DeathParade'' has a very peppy and catchy intro full of dancing. It's also [[BaitAndSwitchCredits incredibly misleading]] as the anime is rarely anything beyond bittersweet and is often just straight up dark and depressing.
* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has a dancing theme done in CGI for the first ending. It's especially popular in Japan. The outro was kept in the English dub, though translated. Several other intros and outros also feature dancing.
