* In the early ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Pinkeye", the boys find themselves cornered by the marauding zombies of the townspeople... [[CrowningMomentOfFunny who then start dancing in a ''Thriller'' parody while Chef sings about how he will make sweet love even when he's dead.]]

* As mentioned in the caption above OingoBoingo had a "Dead Man's Party." Elfman's involvement in composing for the Burton works mentioned in "Film" adds additional cool.

People who are hanged by the neck are sometimes mentioned to dance "the hemp fandango", "[[Literature/{{Discworld}} the sisal twostep]]" or "the gallows jig", a quite-literally-GallowsHumor reference to the way people would thrash at the end of the rope.

rope (usually as a result of the condemned strangling to death rather than having their neck snapped by the fall).

* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' has this trope show up ''twice'', although considering the show is about dancing and can be darkly bizarre at times that might not be too surprising. The first time is in an episode based on the ballet ''Giselle'', where a ghost of a woman that committed suicide dances against Rue and later Princess Tutu for the right to take Mytho to the Underworld. Later on, in the Depths of Despair, skeletons dance ballet -- but not to ''Danse Macabre'', as you might expect, but ''Dance of the Dying Swan''. You also might count Drosselmeyer, who occasionally does brief dance steps and is quite dead.

* At one point in ''Dead And Breakfast'', the zombies surrounding the protagonists stop their assault to break into song and dance, line dancing while a zombified Zachariah And The Lobos Riders play "We're Comin' To Kill Ya".

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} loves to dance. He and his best friend Lydia dance in several episodes, including the pilot, and quite often while levitating.

* ''VideoGame/MrBones'' was a SegaSaturn platformer/rhythm game about a skeleton army raised by an evil necromancer. The only one not under his sway is the titular Mr. Bones, the resurrected corpse of a blues musician who is free from the mind control because he has music in his soul. The object of the game is to get through the haunted woods and put on a music and dance show that puts music in the souls of the other skeletons to free them. I'm not making any of this up.
