Round dance is a term used in bee keeping, entomology and communication of social insects. It describes a specific communicative behavior of honey bees inside the bee hive. When a forager or scout bee returns to the hive she performs a round dance to communicate the location of food sources close to the colony (less than 50-80 m). The bee moves in a circular pattern.

The waggle dance is used for communicating more distant nectar or pollen sources.
