* ''ComicStrip/WhatsNewWithPhilAndDixie'': Dixie indulges in [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20100131 a strip about the wilderness]]. Of course she didn't count on the bees, the snakes, scorpions, spiders or nomadic tribes.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms campaign setting. The Good-aligned female Drow worshipers of Eilistraee dance nude outdoors in the moonlight. (She's big on dancing in general, actually. Her worshippers are fond of Prestige Classes that involve the MagicDance and DanceBattler Tropes.)

(She's big on dancing in general, actually. Her worshippers are fond of Prestige Classes that involve the MagicDance and DanceBattler Tropes.)) The nude moonlight dance is specifically for her ''female'' worshippers -- it's an obligation for her clerics, but her rare male clerics have to [[GenderBender spend the dance as a female]] (they do not have to provide the gender-bending themselves, however).

* The pagan worshippers from the Retribution Arc in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. [[SubvertedTrope Yeah]], they could be considered care-free pagans as far as being hedonistic, baby-sacrificing (and eating), disgusting and perverted, psychedelic orgy participants who are actually worshipping an idol of evil goes.

* This is the subject of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bonheur_Matisse.jpg a famous painting]] by Henri Matise. The subjects are women dancing outdoors in a circle, naked.

[[AC:ComicBooks]]
* Leetah and Nightfall's forest dance in ''ComicBook/ElfQuest: Siege at Blue Mountain'' probably qualifies, aside from its obvious [[LesYay sexual implications]]. (It's actually foreshadowed by a mention, in one of the novelizations, of couples doing that sort of thing.) The novel twist here is that - in an unusual variation on GoneSwimmingClothesStolen - Moonshade, the tribe's seamstress, sneaks in and switches their clothes with new outfits and the pair are delighted she did with compliments on the new apparel.

* In ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' The Dude is part of the sparse audience watching his landlord ineptly perform one of these on stage, thankfully in a [[NudeColoredClothes flesh colored body stocking]] tactfully embellished with ivy instead of actually naked. Presumably The Dude being there is why the landlord is lenient about collecting the rent.

* Subverted and parodied more than once in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels starring either the [[TheHecateSisters three witches]] or Tiffany Aching. Most of the witches find the idea of dancing around naked at night ridiculous, although [[DirtyOldWoman Nanny Ogg]] would probably be game if it weren't for impracticalities like thistles, hedgehogs, and the weather being too cool to go nude on all but the warmest summer nights.

* In ''TheNativeStar'' by M.K. Hobson, Animancy can involve dancing naked. There's even a [[FantasticRacism derogatory term]] for its practitioners derived from this: ''Skycladdische'' - literally "clad [only] in sky"

* Lampshaded in ''DiesTheFire'' when the Wiccans debate whether to do a ceremony naked, and speculate that their founder was just a DirtyOldMan who wanted an excuse to see nude women in Victorian times.

* Alluded to in ''[[Literature/DianaTregarde Children of the Night]]'': Diana tells another Wiccan to bring his robe to the Samhain ritual, "I don't do skyclad". It's for practical reasons; Diana is originally from Connecticut and currently living in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, and it's too ''cold'' both places for outdoor nude rituals in late October. [[note]]In fact, it's ''snowing'' when she makes that comment. The other Wiccan is from the South, so is used to temperatures warm enough that skyclad isn't a health risk.[[/note]]

* In ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'', enemies of the Gaian faction might accuse Lady Deirdre of dancing naked in the trees.

* Strongly implied in ''YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic''. Several characters run into some satyrs and nymphs in the woods, and get caught up dancing with them. When Gren decides to take a break, she is surprised to find that she's naked.
* In one ''{{Nodwick}}'' story, Artax receives an invitation to a ceremony held by the Sisters of Sylvanity, an all-female cult of nature-themed spellcasters who do this for ritual magic. (The invitation was fake, sent by three seers to get him to leave the house so they could talk to Piffany. He doesn't say what happened when he showed up, and it's probably [[TakeMyWordForIt best left to the imagination]].)
