This is the main list of dances. It is a non-categorized, index list of specific dances. There may also be listed dances which could either be considered a specific dance or a family of related dances, depending on your perspective. For example ballet, ballroom dance and folk dance can be considered a single dance style or a family of related dances. The purpose of the page is to have as complete an index as possible.
;Specific dances are listed below in alphabetical order, and only should be listed one time. Variants of a specific dance should be listed as indented items, and not as separate items. For example Waltz has several variants. This makes the list easier to read, and avoids redundant links.
