Ann Dancing is an artwork created in 2007 by Julian Opie (born 1958, London) an English artist and former trustee of the Tate. The sculpture was removed from its base on August 20, 2008, for repairs, and was returned on October 31 of that year.

The sculpture consists of four rectilinear panels of light-emitting diode (LED) screens that each display the same animated image in orange of a woman on all four panels. The woman, "Ann," is wearing a sheath dress and sways from side to side in a dancing motion. Ann either has pointed feet or is wearing high-heeled shoes. She appears to have no clear hairstyle.

It is probable that the animated image of Ann dancing is computer generated from an internally housed computer located in the red brick base of the sculpture.
