*** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', the Dancer class is given only to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Penelo]]. Her dances all revolve around wrecking the enemy's status, as a foil to Hurdy's [[MagicMusic Bard]] class, which improves status. Both of these are {{Call Back}}s to the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' classes of the same name, with similar abilities.

* One of the more common complaints about ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' film was that the elemental bending was portrayed in a way that less resembled martial arts, and more resembled interpretative dance.

* ''FireEmblem'' has the Dancer class that is able to dance for another unit, allowing it an extra move. Especially notable in that regard is Ninian from ''FE 7'', which is central to the plot [[spoiler: since she's a half-dragon woman who has lost almost all her energy and powers, only being able to channelise what's left through her dances and her magical rings]]. Her brother Nils does pretty much the same thing, [[MagicMusic but with a song.]]
** Another ''Fire Emblem'' Dancer key to the plot is [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Azura]], who is a major character in the game and whose dancing is so magical that [[spoiler: she dances to perform an exorcism on the King of Nohr.]]

* In ''Series/EmeraldCity'', East's funeral rites included much swaying and shivering on the part of Glinda's acolytes and West's employees, as well as some flailing and shaking on the part of West herself. It's unclear how much of this was required for the magic of the funeral ritual to work (Glinda and West only mention "tongue" and "[[MagicalIncantation singing her to rest]]" when they discuss the ceremony) and how much was for show, but why would they bother with the theatrics when the Wizard admitted that he opened the ceremony up to the public to reinforce their prejudice against witches? It's implied not all rituals require this (Glinda looks shocked when West starts to dance), so it may be unique to the specific ritual West performed to [[spoiler:take East's spells from her corpse]].

* ''Anime/BraveBeats'' loves this concept. The protagonists transform via literal FusionDance, attack using dances for FullContactMagic, and hunt a type of PowerCrystal based on and activated by dance moves ranging from the moonwalk to the funky chicken.

Compare MagicalGesture and MagicMusic. Also see FullContactMagic. May be aided by or result in SummonBackupDancers.

Compare MagicalGesture and MagicMusic. Compare DanceBattler who uses dancing to directly attack enemies; that trope and this one can even be played together. Also see FullContactMagic. May be aided by or result in SummonBackupDancers.
