You are searching for more grace and fluidity in the complicated relationships in your life. Dancing is also an elaborate mating ritual.
It is a socially acceptable behavior that is designed to escalate toward intimacy and sex. Even dancing alone is a sensual experience that celebrates the ability to move in space. This results in a sensual experience of one’s body, signaling a readiness for sexual expression. In group dancing, such as ballet or modern dance troupes, the symbolic conversation expands to the idea of poetry in motion.

Dancing in a dream may point to liberating the body from complacency or inactivity. It may represent freedom of movement. Dancing with a partner in a dream may fulfill a desire for a more harmonious relationship and a preference to express balance and grace.
Example: ‘We were both shy of each other but as the dance went on I found I could move so well to his steps that we felt like one, it was so effortless that it felt like floating’ (Heather).
The example shows the general meaning of dancing, feeling at one with someone or aspects of yourself. It shows unity, as seen in the cells working as a harmonious whole. It can also mean happiness; sexual mating dance; getting closer or more intimate.
If the dance is awkward: lack of harmony connected with what is depicted. Animals dancing: harmony with unconscious drives and sexuality. Skeletons or dark ‘things’ dancing: developing a relationship with what we fear—meeting it; dancing with death. In life we always dance with death, meaning we have an intimate relationship with it, but might not be ready to recognise who our panner is.
(1) Dancing may be a sexual symbol, representing sexual intercourse.
(2) By virtue of its sexual associations, dancing may represent a coming together - courtship - of the masculine (animus) and feminine (anima) side of one’s nature (for anima / animus, see Brothcr / Sistcr, sections
(3) Joining a dance probably means relating cooperatively with the other person or group. What does that person or group symbolize? It may be some part of you: your hidden self, with its multitude of emotions, instinctive impulses, ideas, ideals, beliefs / prejudices, attitudes, ambitions, etc.
(4) Perhaps it is the ‘dance of life’. Participating / not participating in the dance would then mean relating harmoniously with Nature (or your unconscious) / being out of step with it. (Dancing clumsily might signify that you were ‘out of step’.)
(5) If the dance is a frenzied solo performance, it may represent some kind of‘possession’, indicating that some psychic element is threatening to take you over.
If this is the case, you need to identify the causes of any compulsive behaviour you observe in yourself; and then to come to terms with it - which will usually mean either making space in your life for some hitherto repressed part of you; or getting rid of (repressed) guilt-feelings; or both.
