Dancing was a form of interactive recreation that made use of a series of improvised or prescribed steps, usually accompanied rhythmically by music.

Dr. Beverly Crusher was an award-winning dancer, having come in first in at least one tap and jazz competition at Saint Louis Academy.

In discussing a Bajoran leader who might be a good choice to meet, Crusher spoke of Jas Holza. She stated that he was a concerned leader and good spokesman for his people and that she had found him to be a terrific dancer at a reception afterwards. Ensign Ro Laren, however, was dismissive of the suggestion, describing Holza as a token Bajoran with no real influence among her people. She recommended instead a meeting with Keeve Falor, who she stated had no diplomatic experience and "won't ask you to dance." (TNG: "Ensign Ro")

When he heard that Wesley Crusher couldn't dance, Data offered to give him dance lessons. He had created a comprehensive seventeen-part course with some "interesting holographic dancing partners". (TNG: "The Game")

In 2378, during a celebration of First Contact Day on the USS Voyager, Neelix tried to get Lieutenant Commander Tuvok to dance, but Tuvok insisted that "Vulcans do not dance." Captain Kathryn Janeway threatened to order him to do so, but the festivity was then interrupted by news of Talaxian life signs in a nearby star system. Neelix later stated that he intended to make it his personal mission to get Tuvok to dance at least once before the Voyager crew reached Earth, though Tuvok suggested that he find a more productive hobby. Finally, when Neelix left Voyager to join the Talaxian asteroid colony, Tuvok performed a brief dance shuffle as a sign of respect for Neelix. (VOY: "Homestead")
