The following are dances that can be selected by Primordial Dancers.

Absolute Zero (Sea)

Starting at 1st level, you may impregnate a weapon within 60 feet with a measure of intense cold as a swift action. The next attack made by that weapon this round deals additional cold damage equal to 1d4 + your primordial dancer level on a successful hit, and fatigues the victim for 1 round with a Fortitude save to negate. Starting at 12th level, the fatigue effect lasts for 2 rounds instead.

Whenever you lose the fly speed granted by this ability, if you are both still performing and still swimming, you once again gain the aforementioned fly speed until the beginning of your next turn. (You may fall before checking to see if you're still swimming.)

Aquatwister (Su)

Rubblewalk (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may grant yourself the ability to sidestep obstacles as a swift action.

At 6th level at every six levels thereafter, the duration of this effect increases by +1 round, but ends immediately should your performance end.

Cave In (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, a random mass of material, such as a rock, brick, tree branch, meteorite, mass ejected from a freak eruptive event, or crash-landing condor thwacks a creature within 60 feet upside the head, dealing bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 + your primordial dancer level and dazing that creature for 1 round with a Fortitude save to negate.

At the beginning of each of its turns, that creature takes cold damage equal to your primordial dancer level, rounded down, and must make a Fortitude save or progress one step along the following path of negative effects: fatigued, exhausted, killed instantly. If a creature is already fatigued or exhausted from another source, this does nothing to expedite that creature's progress along the aforementioned path. This ability lasts for 3 rounds, but ends immediately should you cease performing. Any deleterious effects imposed by this ability end as soon as it ends.

This effect persists for the duration of your performance.

The Explorer's Lament (Sea)

Passive

When you first learn this dance, you gain a pool of saline points, a measure of your ability to ignore deleterious effects that would eat away at your defenses. The number of points in your saline pool is equal to your primordial dancer level plus your Charisma modifier. Whenever you would take a penalty to your armor bonus to AC or your natural armor bonus to AC while performing this dance, you may expend a number of saline points equal to the magnitude of the incoming penalty as a free action. If you do, you negate that penalty and are immune to the penalty's source for the duration of your performance.

Starting at 6th level, whenever you would take acid damage, you may expend any number of saline points as a free action. If you do, you gain temporary immunity to acid against that single source of damage. This protection absorbs 2 acid damage from that one source for each saline point you expended, then discharges.

Starting at 12th level, whenever a non-ally creature whose Hit Dice is at least half your character level rolls a 1 when attempting to attack you, you regain 1 saline point, to a maximum of your pool size.

The saline pool replenishes itself whenever your daily duration of this dance replenishes itself.

Active

Polish (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may extend the protection of your saline pool to others as a swift action. For the remainder of your performance, whenever an ally within 30 feet would take a penalty to his armor bonus to AC or his natural armor bonus to AC, you may expend a number of saline points equal to the magnitude of the incoming penalty as a free action. If you do, you negate that penalty and the subject is immune to the penalty's source for the duration of your performance.

Starting at 6th level, your extended protection also applies to acid damage. Whenever an ally within 30 feet would take acid damage, you may expend any number of saline points as a free action. If you do, he gain temporary immunity to acid against that single source of damage. This protection absorbs 2 acid damage from that one source for each saline point you expended, then discharges.

Saltspray (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, you fire a ray of crystallized salt at a creature within 60 feet. Make a ranged touch attack. On a successful hit, the subject takes 1d6 points of damage for each primordial dancer level you possess, and you may expend any number of saline points to impose a penalty to the subject's AC equal to twice the number of saline points expended, to a maximum of the subject's armor bonus to AC. This penalty to AC persists for the duration of your performance.

Flesh to Salt (Sp)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, the subject, along with all its carried gear, permanently turns into a mindless, inert statue of rock salt with a Fortitude save to negate. Creatures whose current hit points are greater than half their maximum hit points get a +2 bonus to this saving throw. Rock salt has a hardness of 5. If the statue resulting from this ability is broken or damaged, the subject (if ever returned to its original state) has similar damage or deformities. The creature is not dead, but it does not seem to be alive either when viewed with spells such as deathwatch. Only creatures made of flesh are affected by this ability.

Directing a constant stream of water at a statue of rock salt deals 10 points of damage to it per round, while submerging a statue of rock salt deals 1 point of damage to it per round. This damage ignores hardness.

Floeing Step (Sea)

Passive

While performing this dance, your movement speed cannot be slowed by cold temperatures or weather effects, and weapons you wield deal an additional point of cold damage. Starting at 12th level, inclement weather cannot force you to make concentration checks.

Active

Ice Floe (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may create an iceberg in an adjacent square as a swift action. This ability can only be used at the interface between water and air, meaning that a legally-targetable unoccupied square must represent the surface of a body of water. While atop the iceberg, you may will it to move a distance equal to your base land speed as a move action, but you cannot move into occupied squares in this fashion.

Starting at 6th level, you may produce an iceberg that is up to two squares in size. One square of the iceberg must be adjacent to you, while the other must be adjacent to the square that is itself adjacent to you. At 12th level and 18th level, the maximum size of your iceberg increases by an additional square. All designated iceberg squares must be adjacent to at least one other iceberg square, and at least one iceberg square must be adjacent to you. Each square of your iceberg has hit points equal to 5 + twice your primordial dancer level and hardness equal to your Charisma modifier. Your ability to control the iceberg persists for the duration of your performance, but the iceberg itself persists until its hit points reach 0. Once you cease you perform, each square of your iceberg takes 1 point of hardness-ignoring damage each minute. If you create another iceberg, any previously-created icebergs vanish immediately.

Ice Throw (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a swift action. If you do, you create a number of icicles equal to your primordial dancer level that persist for 1 hour beyond the duration of your performance. Treat these icicles as thrown weapons with a range increment of 20 feet that deal 1d8 points of piercing damage, plus cold damage equal to your Charisma modifier, on a successful hit. You do not apply other ability modifiers to the damage dealt by these icicles.

Hailstorm (Su)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, you produce a hailstorm in a cylinder (20ft. radius, 40 ft. high) centered within 60 feet of you. Creatures that begin their turn in the hailstorm take 2d6 bludgeoning damage and cold damage equal to half your primordial dancer level, rounded down. As a move action, if you are within 60 feet of the center of the hailstorm, you may move the storm up to 30 feet, so long as it remains within range throughout its move.

Hissing Corrosion (Land)

Passive

Weapons you wield deal an additional point of acid damage on a successful hit. This acid damage increases by +1 for every six primordial dancer levels you possess, to a maximum of 4 additional acid damage at 18th level.

Active

Dismantle (Su)

Destructive Touch (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a swift action. If you do, your natural weapons, your unarmed attacks, and weapons you wield gain the vicious weapon special ability for the duration of your performance.

Boundless Corrosion (Su)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a move action.

This effect persists for the duration of your performance.

The Inevitable Lament (Life)

Passive

Whenever a foe within 30 feet dies or is destroyed while you perform this dance, all other creatures within 30 feet of you that considered that foe to be an ally are dazzled for 1 round with a Will save to negate. Starting at 6th level, creatures are shaken instead of dazzled. This is a Mind-affecting ability; however, starting at 12th level, creatures that are normally immune to mind-affecting abilities can still be affected by this ability.

Active

Reverse Polarity (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may reverse the polarity of a willing creature in reach for 1 round as a standard action. While its polarity is reversed, if that creature is normally healed by positive energy, it takes damage from it instead, and if that creature is normally damaged by negative energy, it is healed by it instead.

Quicken the End (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a move action. If you do, a creature within 60 feet that has no temporary negative levels gains a temporary negative level with a Fortitude save to negate.

Wallow in Grief (Su)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, all creatures within 60 feet that are subject to an ongoing fear effect (shaken, frightened, panicked) gain a temporary negative level and take 2 points of ability drain to Strength and Constitution with a Fortitude save to negate the temporary negative level and convert the ability drain to ability damage instead.

Interpretive Thunderclap (Sky)

Spontaneous Vitality (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you gain a pool of duality points equal to one-half your primordial dancer level, rounded down, plus your Charisma modifier. While performing this dance, you may expend duality points equal to the spell level of a spell to which you have access thanks to this dance's passive ability. If you do, you may cast that spell without expending a spell slot.

The duality pool replenishes itself whenever this dance's daily duration replenishes.

A New Beginning (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a swift action. If you do, choose a creature within 60 feet that died in the last round, and treat it as though it were alive for the purpose of your healing spells.

The End (Sp)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, a creature within 30 feet whose current hit points are less than or equal to 7 times your primordial dancer level dies instantly with a Fortitude save to negate. This is a death effect.

Miracle Step (Land)

Passive

While performing this dance, weapons you wield are considered to be in locked gauntlets, save that you can let go of weapons unhindered. Further, the armor check penalty of your armor is reduced by -1, plus an additional -1 for every six primordial dancer levels you possess, to a minimum penalty of 0.

Active

Miracle Pull (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may direct magnetism toward a creature in reach as a move action, thus subjecting it to the disarm combat maneuver with a CMB equal to your primordial dancer level + your Charisma modifier. You do not have to roll to hit, nor are you subject to attacks of opportunity for attempting to disarm in this manner. Starting at 12th level, this ability is activated as a swift action.

Miracle Lock (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, you subject a creature within 60 feet to opposing magnetic forces. If it wears metal armor, the subject treats the maximum Dexterity bonus of its armor as though it were halved, rounded down, for the duration of your performance, and it also takes a penalty to attack rolls equal to half its armor check penalty, rounded down, for the same duration. A successful Fortitude save negates.

Miracle Attraction (Su)

Starting at 12th level, you may expend 2 rounds of this dance's daily duration as a standard action. If you do, all creatures within 60 feet who are actively wielding or wearing a combination of a metal weapon with another metal weapon, a metal shield, or metal armor have all of their metal weapons stick to their armor, shields, and each other, rendering them impossible to use. This effect persists for the duration of your performance, though a creature may take a standard action or an attack in a full-attack action to attempt to wrench a weapon free so that it is usable again. This requires a DC 10 + 1/2 your primordial dancer level + your Charisma modifier Strength check; if successful, this effect ends immediately for that particular weapon.

Passive

While performing this dance, you add your Charisma modifier, if positive, to your Knowledge skill checks.

Cosmic Augury (Su)

If you do, you summon your choice of an air, earth, fire, or water elemental whose size corresponds to the number of rounds of daily dance duration you expended (see the table below). This elemental is treated as a summoned creature and persists for the duration of your performance, plus additional rounds equal to the number of rounds of daily dance duration you expended to summon it in the first place. Unlike a normal summoned creature, elementals you summon with this ability gain the benefits of all passive abilities granted by dances you are currently performing.

Performing Sentry (Su)

Starting at 12th level, whenever you summon an elemental with the primal sentry active ability, choose a dance you know that you are not performing. Your summoned elemental gains the benefits of that dance's passive ability, and may use that dance's active abilities as though it possessed 3 rounds of daily duration of that pool. The elemental does not expend daily duration to maintain the chosen dance, but rather only expends daily duration to use active abilities. The elemental is considered to have a primordial dancer level equal to the lesser of its Hit Dice or half your primordial dancer level, rounded down, for the purpose of determining the power of its dance abilities, and it loses this ability immediately if you start to perform the chosen dance.

As a swift action, you manifest a slight buzzing directly in the ear of an ally within range, which communicates a message of up to 10 words. Your allies may also communicate in the same manner, but only if you are the subject of their communication. This form of communication cannot be detected by magical means, but can be detected by a successful DC 10 + ½ the speaker's character level + the speaker's Charisma modifier Perception check by any creature that is adjacent to the subject. Further, any creature within 60 feet of you with blindsense can clearly perceive any communications passed about in this manner. No Perception check is required.

Active

Nonselective Whispers (Su)

Starting at 1st level, you may remove some of the restrictions of this dance's passive ability for 1 round as a move action. For the duration, you may produce a message in the ear of any creature within range, not just an ally. The duration of this ability increases by +1 round for every six primordial dancer levels you possess.

Tangoes

Sidebar: Tangos
It takes two to tango! The following dances are all made to be used with a friend in mind, and complicated rulings will be provided here rather than copied six times. All tango dances have the following passive text,

"When you begin to perform this dance, choose an ally within 10 feet. If you activate one of this dance's active abilities while within 30 feet of the chosen ally, then your ally also gains the benefits of that active ability."

What this means is while your chosen ally is in range, he gains the benefits of any active ability from that tango you have running. The ally can't activate any tango ability with an activation cost, but if you activate a tango ability that grants you the use of another ability, such as a single-use spell-like ability, then your ally gains that ability, too.

This effect persists for the duration of your performance.

Billowing Tango (Sky)

Forms of harm that do not involve hit points, such as charm effects, temporary ability damage, level draining, and death effects, are not affected. If you suffer a reduction of hit points from a lowered Constitution score, the reduction is not split with your chosen ally because it is not hit point damage. This effect persists for the duration of your performance.

Shared Health (Su)

Starting at 6th level, you may expend 1 round of this dance's daily duration to link with your chosen ally (if you have one) as a standard action.
