-->''"If it is to be, it's up to me!"''
''Sky Dancers'' was an animated cartoon featuring [[FiveManBand five students]] studying at Dame Skyla's Dance Academy. Jade, Camille, Breeze, Angelica and Slam are called upon by Dame Skyla, who is secretly Queen of the Wingdom, to protect her territory from her evil brother-in-law, Skyclone, who terrorizes the kingdom of her deceased husband, Skylar, with his Horroricanes, Terrornadoes and a trio of imps named Mumbo, Jumbo, and Snarl in attempts to capture [[MacGuffin The Skyswirl Stone]].

* MesACrowd: One of Skyclone's abilities.
* MyLittlePanzer: The Sky Dancer toys are basically flying, spinning, helicopter-dolls that leave their base at high speed when a string is pulled. [[http://www.cracked.com/article_15764_5-least-surprising-toy-recalls-all-time.html Guess what happens when they hit people.]]
* PowerFloats: Skyclone, as opposed to straight-up flying.
* ReplacedTheThemeTune: The cartoon had a different opening and entirely new background music when it was released in volumes on DVD.
* RightForTheWrongReasons: Skyclone, when in disguise as the late King Skyler, explains his return by claiming he was banished to the Netherworld instead of dying. Turns out that [[spoiler: the real Skyler ''was'' just banished, and can take form in the real one as a spirit]].
* SiblingRivalry: Skyclone, the king's eldest son, attempts to kill his younger brother Skylar who was named the Wingdom's king.
* SpearCounterpart: ''DragonFlyz'' took the same concept as the ''SkyDancers'' toys and turned into an action figure line (and cartoon) marketed to boys.
* TerribleTrio: The imps.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Angelica can stop time, Breeze can create wind, Slam can control gravity, Jade can turn invisible...and Camille can make shapes out of clouds. That disappear after awhile.
** To be fair, her cloud sculptures are at least solid enough to form working cages. She even made a cannon at one point.
* WingedHumanoid: The Sky Dancers, and other winged beings in the Wingdom.
* YouMonster: Skyla calls out Skyclone for using the anniversary of Skyler's death to trap her.
