The Tiger dancers are four male[1] tigers who are background dancers for the Zootopian pop star Gazelle in Zootopia.

Physical Appearance

The tiger dancers are all nearly identical in appearance. They all have orange fur with black stripes and white accents, all have glitter-dusted faces and all wear sparkly black-and-silver shorts with trim and slits on the sides.

Their predominantly bare upper bodies are much broad and muscular than their lower bodies and they all have large arms and paws.

Role in the Film


The tigers at Gazelle's rally

Their first appearance is just after Renato Manchas goes savage, in the form of a single dancer with Clawhauser's face on it, seen in the Dancing with Gazelle app on the cheetah's cellphone.

The dancers are next seen near the climax of the film, during Gazelle's peace protest. Two stand on either side of her and the other two are seen mingling with the edges of the crowd below. Because of this behavior, they are most likely acting as bodyguards for Gazelle.

During the credits of the film, all four tiger dancers can be seen dancing alongside Gazelle at her concert.
