I like a lot of the same shows you do -- I'm also digging Claymore a lot, 
though I can't help but feel that Claire is Vampire Hunter D after 
gender-reassignment surgery.

>>The second is the end credits to "Kaibutsu Oujo" (Monster Princess).  Not
>>entirely dance, but one of my favorite credit montages ever, with the 
>>character pirouetting around in her goth gown while maniacally swinging 
>>chainsaw around, and wolf-girl Lizar doing a particularly scandalous (and
>>well-animated) hip-hop grind-down in one shot (yeah, baby!).
>>Am I the only cartoon-dance fetishist out there?  Anybody got any more
>>noteworthy animated dances in recent anime to feed my predilection?
