Not really a hummingbird dance, but it was interesting to watch the preening process and be able to capture the finite details of this hummingbird's foot. Over time, their feet have evolved to be small so they are lighter weight - - more efficient for flying fast.

 

Even though they cannot walk or hop on their feet (for example like a robin), they will use their feet to preen or for itching.  They also are able to hop sideways when perched on a branch like this.
