* Bolorenof in ''HunterXHunter'' combines this with MagicMusic: His body has holes in his flesh that, when he dances, vibrates the wind going through them, making him a woodwind instrument. When dancing in certain ways, he produces songs that summon things to attack for him.

* [[TropeOverdosed Naturally]], this has made an appearance in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. The {{Badass}} MagicalNativeAmerican Listens-to-Wind used dancing as a catalyst for spells against [[spoiler:the [[EldritchAbomination skinwalker]]. And [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome proceeded to "kick [its] ass up between [its] ears"]].]]

* Aleister Crowley believed that Isadora Duncan was the best in the world at MagicDance. To be fair, on one occasion, she danced by herself, in a toga on an empty stage and the audience left praising the costuming, scenery and choreography.

A DanceBattler uses his dancing techniques as a means of fighting, overpowering his opponents with unpredictable movements, all while [[RuleOfCool looking cool]].

So, of course, there's a wizard version: FunctionalMagic or some other kind of power(s) that, instead of [[MagicalIncantation vocal recitations]] or [[GeometricMagic drawings and diagrams]], [[RitualMagic require specific body movements and rhythms]] to be activated. More often used by {{Magic Knight}}s than by {{Squishy Wizard}}s, given the more physical nature of its use.

* ''Literature/TheChangeling'' by Zilpha Keatley Snyder has Ivy Carson, who is obsessed with dance. She is always making up [[http://www.dreamshore.net/images/raible/newmagic.jpg dances for magical ceremonies and rituals]], part of the elaborate "Land of the Green Sky" paracosm she shares with her friend Martha and sister (and possible ChildMage) Josie. Dance is an important part of the culture of [[GreenSkyTrilogy Green-sky]], which Snyder extrapolated from the little girls' game.

* In ''{{Exalted}}'', pretty much any Performance Charm will work with dancing just as well as speechmaking, music, or any other performance. Want to stop an army in its tracks with a waltz? Go for it, and have a [[RuleOfCool 2-die stunt]] while you're at it.
