A chorus line is a large group of dancers who together perform synchronized routines, usually in musical theatre. Sometimes, singing is also performed.

Chorus line dancers in Broadway musicals and revues have been referred to by slang terms such as ponies, gypsies and twirlies. Ballet uses the term corps de ballet. A chorus girl or chorine is a female performer in a chorus line (or in a chorus), and the word "chorine" is not to be confused with chlorine.
