"An enchanting master of the dance who gyres and gyrates to evoke an array of magickal effects."

Dancer is a job class exclusive to Penelo in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Her dances have debilitating effects on enemies. Notably, many of this job's abilities are taken directly from the Dancer classes in Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy Tactics, though they lack the latter game's target-all-enemies capability. The Dancer can equip poles, rods, staves, and daggers. In Utility, it is the direct opposite of Hurdy's Bard job, some moves being related, such as the "Forbidden Dance" and "Nameless Song" being exact opposites.

Though with average stat growths, this job can be very lethal if subbed with the Assassin giving the benefits of equiping powerful katanas, access to Last Breath and ranged attack via Great bows. If equipped with Reflex and Ribbon Penelo can defeat almost any foe without concern about standard attacks and debuffs herself making a fearsome unit.
