About Dancing Script

Dancing Script is a bouncy, casual script perfect for marketing and graphics. Script lettering usually comes in two types: fancy and casual. We have previously covered fancy scripts, like Nathalia Script.

Fancy scripts are used for formal occasions, like wedding invitations. They are full of excessive, decorative curls and appear decadent and elegant. Casual scripts are influenced by handwriting. They have less fanciful curls and offer more personality.

Dancing Script is a casual script with slightly bouncy letters. The sizes(height) of capital letters are generous and go below the baseline. These traits make Dancing Script extra lively.

The character set of Dancing Script

The character set of Dancing Script

Dancing Script is lively yet bouncy. The smooth curves with enlarged capitals make this casual script look graceful. The bold version is visible enough on smaller scales as a logo.

How to use Dancing Script for marketing and branding?

Dancing Script is perfect as a display font to create eye-catching graphics. The casual script adds a personal touch to the text and is excellent for shorter quotes and pull-out copies; however, because of its personable quirks, its use should be limited.

Typography Jargon Buster!


Ligatures are unique characters created from multiple letters of common letter combinations to improve readability in a font. or example, the letter “f” has a high frequency of occurring with “i” and “l”, as in words like “figure” and “flower.” To improve the readability in these specific cases, “fi” and “fl”, would be combined to create a unique character that would replace the two letters when typed together.
