Dance of Pales, also known as Waltz of Pearls, is a music theme originally composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It is the background theme for Olrox's Quarters.

It later reappeared in Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night where it was used as the main menu theme, and also appeared in Pachislot Akumajō Dracula II.
