The Hades Ballet
The Devil's Cabaret, a 1930 low-budget musical, was built around a scrap of "lost" footage called "The Hades Ballet".
"The Hades Ballet" was an abandoned musical number from The March of Time, which was a 1929 production whose musical/dance numbers were filmed, but not the rest of the story. After the uncompleted film was scrapped, the footage was portioned out piecemeal to other films.
Definitely our kind of ballet.
