->"It's funny, isn't it? You would never suspect that everyone at this school is a professional dancer."

* The opening of ''{{Hair}}'' features a Crowd Dance.
* In ''My Best Friend's Wedding'', the song "I Say a Little Prayer" breaks out at the family-style seafood restaurant, starting with one guy at the busy table singing in answer to one question, and it grows steadily for almost five minutes, each time the song reaches the end of a verse or chorus, you think its over. But no, it just kicks off bigger and bigger, until the dancing lobsters join in near the end. It's a brilliant spot in a movie that had other problems, but it works so well, it is worth living with the other problems just to see it.

* '' Film/{{Clerks II}}'' had one of these with that Jackson 5 song.
* ''[[Film/SisterAct Sister Act 2]]'' also had one in that the kids had been practicing a big traditional choral presentation, but then at the last minute when faced up against a big-time school that did the same thing better than they could have, turn it into a mixed-style free-for-all version of the same basic song. Note that the accompanying music also keeps up with the different style changes, even though they just decided to do it this way a few minutes prior.

* In the second ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' film, the climactic fight spills into a club where Music/VanillaIce is performing. After a brief chat with his backup dancers, he launches into what's apparently an entire improvised rap with perfectly matched dancing about the fight.

* ''The Carol Burnett Show'' did a wild version of this early in its run. Carol came out and addressed the audience in front of a plain curtain as she often did. She said they wanted to feature a song by her co-star, Vikki Lawrence. (This was long before she had a hit with the song "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia".) Carol continued by saying a lot of the people on the show were pulling for Vikki to do well and they had done all they could to make this special, so if their enthusiasm overtook their judgement she hoped the audience would understand. Vikki is introduced, she comes out in front of the plain curtain and begins to sing her number. Gradually, of course, the curtain pulls back and the choreography and stuff begins, and keeps building and topping itself, each time. By the end the whole stage is covered with dancers, acrobats, animals, fireworks and confetti. If that wasn't bad enough, the song she performed was a version of "Look What They've Done to My Song".

** Some fanworks have run with the idea that this is actually a documented natural phenomenon in Equestria, which makes at least as much sense as [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows a manually operated day-night cycle and seasons that have to be changed by hand.]]

* Lampshaded in ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', as Robert is [[OnlySaneMan the only one who finds it odd]] that everyone is spontaneously dancing and singing in the middle of Central Park.

* Lampshaded in ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', as Robert is [[OnlySaneMan the only one who finds it odd]] that everyone is spontaneously dancing and singing in the middle of Central Park. He is also confused by the fact that everybody in the park seems to know the song being performed, "That's How You Know," but he doesn't, even though he apparently follows popular music.
