Now behold my greatest treasure... DANCE!!

The Dancer is a character in Shovel Knight. She can be found in the tavern under the Village. After beating Specter Knight, she will reward the player with her greatest treasure: DANCE!!! She then proceeds to dance around the tavern (including on the bar) while Grandma Swamp, the Juice Maid, and the Deposed King cheer her on. At the end of her dance, she reveals the Music Sheet for her song, Watch Me Dance!

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about an event that occurs later in the game.

In Specter of Torment, it is revealed that she learned to dance in order to impress Specter Knight, as well as hinting that she had fallen in love with him. However, he blows her off, and she runs off with a broken heart, swearing revenge. After that, Specter Knight unlocks the Cold Shoulder command.
