FFT Dancer (踊り子, Odoriko?) is a female-exclusive job, unlocked by training a female unit in physical jobs in Final Fantasy Tactics. The Dancer inflicts several status changes on all enemies on the field by her dances. Dancers ideally have high Brave, because it directly affects the Dancer's abilities.

Dancers, like Bards, are useful when it comes to gathering JP, because once selected, the ability will repeat, earning the same amount of EXP and JP. For example, if the player has selected Mincing Minuet and the CT is 10 turns, 10 turns after the initial dance it will repeat, provided the player has not selected another ability to be performed. It costs 3950/8000 JP to master this job, depending on the version.


A warrior who dances across the battlefield, garbed in colorful raiments.
