This article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by fixing it.

Dance as musical form is a smaller musical composition intended for the presentation of dance. By its virtue, it can be used as an accompaniment for actual dance, but its main purpose is music as such.

"Dance" can be part of larger composition, such as symphony or ballet. In this case "dance" corresponds the part of libretto that tells about a dance that happens according to the plot.
