  • Royal Ballet dancer Michael Coleman appears as one of the Mutations in The Muppet Show episode 318.
  • In episode 409, Statler and Waldorf complain that the opening numbers are too weird -- "what do you have tonight, a Chinese gorilla dancing ballet?" Embarrassed, Kermit cancels the opening number, infuriating the Chinese gorilla who was planning to dance ballet.
  • Along with the above-mentioned Ballerina Pig, Graham Fletcher performed Fletcher Bird and the Giant Spider on the show.
  • Philip Casson directed roughly half of the episodes of The Muppet Show (with Peter Harris); Casson began his career by training as a dancer, and performed as both a dancer and choreographer with Ballet Montmartre.

Which is precisely what happens.

Ballet is a type of dance that originated from Earth. Performances are called ballets. Female dancers are called ballerinas, while male dancers were danseurs.

Kathryn Janeway was an accomplished ballerina; she took up ballet when she was six years old. (VOY: "Coda")

Pazzo was the only danseur in his Romulan Naval Academy class. He was accompanied by Lyran ballerinas. Some years later, Annika Hansen has fulfilled Seven of Nine's childhood dream by becoming the lead dancer of the Romulan Naval Academy (and later the Tal Prai'ex) in her stead. (RIS Bouteina)

Although the Simpsons considered Annika rather average, she did, on more than one occasion, give ballet lessons. (RIS Bouteina: "Miracle in Whoville")
