The reluctant character then grudgingly admits his Terrible Secret: ''He doesn't know how to dance!'' No worries, though; a [[TrainingMontage single scene]] practicing his two-step and he'll be tripping the light fantastic in no time.

* In ''Film/AKnightsTale'', Will is invited to the champion's ball after his first tournament, but he doesn't want to go because he doesn't know how to dance. He gets training from his blacksmith, [[TheChick the only girl in his entourage]], and ends up inventing his own dance (to the tune of [[DavidBowie Golden Years]]) later.

All the heroes are gearing up for the big sock-hop at the discotheque, but one character wants to stay behind. "What?" cry his friends. "You can't refuse to go! It's the big dance! It's the event of the season! It's being thrown in your honor!"

* Franck Crumit's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOrmxab4rvg "Stumbling all around"]]
--> I can't dance, took a chance, And right then we started
--> Stumbling all around, stumbling all around, Stumbling all around, so funny
--> Stumbling here and there, stumbling everywhere, And I must declare
--> I stepped right on her toes, and when she bumped my nose, I fell, and when I rose, I felt ashamed!

* Also a RunningGag for a time in ''Series/MurdochMysteries''. Inspector Brackenereid gives Murdoch two tickets to a dance and when Murdoch is initially reluctant to take them, his boss makes a crack about dancing not being against Murdoch's religion. Murdoch takes lessons so he can escort Dr. Ogden, and she attends the same school to improve her own skills. Both of them need the help: Murdoch steps on her feet and has to remind her not to lead. In a later episode, when Higgins says Murdoch will waltz in and have the information for which the constables are wearily searching fingerprint cards, Crabtree retorts that Murdoch doesn't waltz: "Believe me, I've seen him try."

* One episode of ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears'' cartoon has Brother Bear trying to get out of the annual Bear Country Jamboree by admitting to his parents that he can't dance. Mama Bear helps him learn how to dance by telling to imagine the dance moves as sports moves, since Brother is an excellent athlete.
