The Air Dance Technique is the ability to manipulate one's life in order to fly.


The Air Dance Technique is a supplementary technique that involves emitting life from the user's whole body to enable them to move as if fluttering through the air. While the technique is seemingly common to many races in the galaxy — such as Saiyans, Nameccians, and Freeza's Army — on Earth, the technique was first used by Tsuru-Sennin. The technique is a basic life manipulation technique, and it is ranked similarly to the use of a basic life blast. While the technique can be learned through training, some fighters, such as Son Gokū and Kulilin, learned through self-tutelage.

The speed at which a user can fly with the Air Dance Technique is dependent on their level of skill as well as volume of life; Videl, who had only recently learned how to fly, and had considerably less life than the rest of the Dragon Team, was unable to keep pace with Son Gohan and Kibito in the Majin Bū Arc.[4] Aliens capable of flight, such as Piccolo, utilize the same principles of the Air Dance Technique in their own flight methods, despite claims to the contrary.[2]


  • In the anime, Gohan describes the technique differently than Daizenshū. When Gohan describes flight to Videl, he describes it as placing the user's ki under their body to hold themselves up.
