War Dances are a skill set exclusive to the Swordmaster class in the PSP version of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. War Dances are primarily support skills that cast buffs or ailments in an area around the caster, hitting allies or enemies as needed. Unlike other skillsets, these require TP to cast.
Similar to Draconic Magic, Necromancy and Ninjutsu, War Dances need a sundry cost in addition to the TP cost. The sundries needed can be bought from any Shop, but a few can only be found in Deneb's Shop.
For any skill name marked with an asterisk (*), see end of table for notes.

|Lion Dance||...the voice rang out, the heavens shook. Then did the shining tiger come, lending courage to those who saw his terrible glory...|
|Harvest Dance||...so did the grain of life grow rich; land and people both knew health and the favor of the gods...|
|Bellows Dance||...the heavy boots crushed sand to black iron. 'Fashion from it a shield!' the monger said...|
|Shriving Dance||...the sword he swung, a gift from the gods, and pain was banished...|
|Comely Dance||...a dance not of joy but a bellows to hate-fire. The steps became a song, a curse upon flesh...|
|Bedevilling Dance||...and the demons thronged, clinging to boot and mail, dragging him down like a suit of iron...|
|Envigorating Dance||...what a choice to bow, before enemy sworn, and sheath the sword...|
|Demonpetal Dance||...she danced a dance of beauty and night-flowers, and all who saw her were taken with fever...|
- War Dances are functionally identical to the Samurai's Iaido/Draw Out skills in Final Fantasy Tactics, another game by Yasumi Matsuno; the only difference is that the Samurai's skills are focused on damage instead.
