The DreamBallet had its heyday in musical {{theatre}} from the 1930s through 1950s, when it was a favorite of such choreographers as George Balanchine, Agnes de Mille, Jerome Robbins and BobFosse. It appeared in other media as well, but has now fallen out of fashion. It doesn't necessarily have to be a dream, but it only takes place in a character's mind.

* ''Theatre/TheCatAndTheFiddle'' has one which segues with a DiegeticSwitch from the end of a scene where a disconsolate Victor is hearing Shirley playing one of her jazzy piano pieces. Eight girls in grotesque costumes appear in front of the curtain, playing discordant riffs on violin, banjo, trumpet, clarinet, trombone, saxophone, tuba and cymbals. The music settles into a delirious blues, accompanying the wailing of an EtherealChoir.
