Dancetale is an Undertale AU that is parallel to the main world of Undertale, but instead of attacks, all the characters have a unique dance style that the main character must follow to avoid being injured.
Every Monster is dressed according to their dance type, and their theme/fight music is adapted to fit their own dance.This is only fanmade by Teandatars
The Dancetale AU was created by Teandstars and Sterrenschijnse (http://dancetale.tumblr.com/).
Generally, in this AU, Frisk is viewed as female, but is still referred to as "they".
Frisk, upon falling down into the underground of Mt. Ebott, did not originally know how to dance, but was taught the basics by Toriel and picked up dances from the other monsters they encounter. The dance they personally prefer is ballet, because of how calm they are.
In the words of the author, "When two monsters dance, their SOULs resonate. If compatible, a stronger bond is formed between the two. (Along with better understanding, empathy, respect, and love [platonic or romantic]). It doesn’t matter if the dance style is the same; if they are compatible, their styles will meld, creating a balanced, harmonious dance." An example of this is if Sans and Papyrus danced together, it might be a Hip-hop style dance with elements of Latin dance, or vice versa.
Monsters are born with the ability to dance. It’s instinctive. Like love and compassion, it’s a big part of their soul. Each monster specializes in a certain style of dancing…this is their “main dance”. However, monsters are not limited to one dance; they may know two or more. Others seem to excel in multiple dances, but what they choose as their main dance is up to them. Though all monsters have the ability to dance, some choose not to. It’s all about preference
It is customary for monsters to bow before dancing. It is taken as a polite gesture before taking part in the dance. But, if you don’t bow, it’s okay. No one will get mad at you. It would be rude not to finish the dance, though.
- Performs ballet.
- Wears the Old Tutu.
- Viewed as female, but still referred to as "they"
- Frisk knows how to dance ballet because of Chara. There’s this sort of magic that lingers with these monsters, and this magic allows the gift of dancing to anyone, even humans. Frisk got the ability to dance because of the exposure to the magic. But, because they fell on the bed of flowers where Chara was buried, Frisk’s dance became somewhat by the lingering essence of Chara. Ballet, which is (kind of) similar to, but the opposite of modern dance.

- Performs freestyle modern Dances, that includes tricks and back flips, like how Sans does his dance.
- Wears a black jacket with a black tank top with black pants.
- Chara does manipulate Frisk’s body. The thing here, though–since their SOULs are linked you can catch Chara dancing ballet in combat–but unwillingly. Chara is mostly in control of both the body and the soul, of course, but Frisk still has some power, and they use that power to try to rebel against Chara’s doings through unexpected ballet moves. It’s Frisk’s way of trying to stop Chara and help Sans (In this AU, anyway.) After all, Chara’s dance is, I guess, somewhat the opposite of ballet. Modern dance is meant to rebel against ballet, but this time Frisk is turning it around.

- Some fans say that he likes Frisk, but this is not true.
- Sans used to be an avid dancer; science isn’t the only thing he’s passionate about. However, upon gaining knowledge of the resets, he stopped. He’s more graceful that you would think.
