* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Cordelia asks Angel to dance at a party in "She". Cue ImagineSpot of Angel dancing like a goof; upon cutting back to reality, Angel says "[[ICantDance I don't dance]]." Wesley is implied to be an actual case -- check out the credits scene in "She", and the DeletedScene in "Waiting in the Wings" where Wesley has a fantasy he's ballet dancing with Fred.

Not even the dislikes and hate comments make her give up, but with a little help from Austin, she ends up winning the contest with a video where everybody dances like her on a catchy tune.

** This trait seems to run in the family, as Jeremy's mother is equally bad, if not ''worse'' than her son. As shown in the page image, her dancing is so ridiculous, people called the EMTs because they thought she was having a seizure.

Added DiffLines:

* Leshawna from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' thinks she is great at dancing, but during the dancing contest between her and Trent in "Beach Blanket Bogus", she's revealed to be the opposite. In the second ''World Tour'' Aftermath, when she is asked to sing to help Bridgette and Geoff's fundraiser, she expresses her preference to dance, to which they object, knowing that she's a bad dancer.

If the bad dancer in question is also a singer, it can go hand in hand with DreadfulMusician and HollywoodToneDeaf. A complete opposite to the DancingRoyalty.

* ''WesternAnimation/Frozen2013'': The Duke Of Weselton has a unique dance style that includes kicking his legs sideways, jumping around his partner like a peacock, crushing her toes and flopping his DodgyToupee.

Added DiffLines:

* Larry says Bob can't dance in the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' Silly Song "Dance of the Cucumber", irking Bob to no end, though the interruption of the Asparaguses prevents Bob from taking his anger out on Larry until Larry insults him again by saying he can't sing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ADiplomaticVisit'': Celestia, according to her sister, as noted in chapter 7 of the second sequel, ''Diplomacy Through Schooling''. And Twilight learned her own poor dancing style from Celestia.
* ''Fanfic/RealityChecksNyxverse'': In ''Nightmare Night and Nyx'', one of the Royal Sisters - shown as Luna, but later implied to be a disguised Celestia - dances just as wildly as Twilight does in canon.


* Hilariously subverted in a ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' TV special when Garfield's owner Jon heads out to the dance floor. Jon does a surprisingly epic dance... But unfortunately he's doing ''disco'' in the late-1980s and gets ridiculed by everybody else in the club.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/DeepRockGalactic:'' While [[BeleagueredBoss he has his biases]], Mission Control definitely finds the dwarves' dancing to be fairly terrible whenever they turn the jukebox on, and will call them out. In objective terms, other than an unfortunate tendency to Floss and ''never'' matching the right dance to the right music, they're not too bad.


* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'': The Duke Of Weselton has a unique dance style that includes kicking his legs sideways, jumping around his partner like a peacock, crushing her toes and flopping his DodgyToupee.
* According to ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIII'', Aquata dances like a "spastic piece of kelp". This is at odds with previous comics that presented her as a good dancer due to ballet lessons. The film [[{{retcon}} ignores]] the previous extended ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' media in many ways (for example, Attina is the oldest sister in the third film but extended material previously put emphasis on Aquata as being the heir).
