La Danse (The Dance) is an 1868 sculpture by the French artist Jean Baptiste Carpeaux.

It was one of four sculptural groups made from Echaillon marble that decorate the façade of the Opera Garnier in Paris, two each side of the ground level entrance.

Installed in 1869, it was widely criticised as obscene, so much so that it was anonymously sprayed in ink in the August of 1869.
