Enchanting Dance: Once per day per soul dancer level, you can use your dance to produce supernatural effects on those who observe you. Each ability requires both a minimum soul dancer level and a minimum number of ranks in the Perform (dance) skill to qualify; if you do not have the required number of ranks, you do not gain the enchanting dance ability until you acquire them. This ability can be used only if you are wearing light armor or no armor and carrying no more than a light load. Enchanting dance is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting ability. Starting an enchanting dance effect is a standard action. You must concentrate each round to maintain the dance; no dance can be maintained for more rounds than your soul dancer level + your Con modifier (minimum 1 round). The save DC for your enchanting dance effects is 10 + your soul dancer level + your Cha modifier + 1/10th (rounded down) of a Perform (dance) check result that the Soul Dancer makes as a free action as part of the enchanting dance ability. A creature canít be affected again by your enchanting dance effect for 24 hours whether or not it succeeds on the saving throw. All Enchanting Dance abilities affect all opponents within 30 ft, except for the suggestive dance ability. While maintaining the dance, the Soul Dancer may only take a partial action each round.
Fascinating Dance: A level 1 Soul Dancer with at least 10 ranks in Perform (dance) can Fascinate enemies who witness her dance, as the spell, for the duration of the dance. They must be humanoid, and of the opposite gender.
Charming Dance: A level 3 Soul Dancer with at least 12 ranks in Perform (dance) can Charm opponents, as the spell, for the duration of the dance. This affects only humanoids of the opposite gender. Her fascinating dance ability can now affect monstrous humanoids of the opposite gender.
Suggestive Dance: A level 5 Soul Dancer with at least 14 ranks in Perform (dance) affects opponents with a magical Suggestion, as the spell. One suggestion may be made each round that the dance is maintained, and each opponent may be targeted only once. Her fascinating dance can now affect both genders, and her charming dance can now affect Monstrous Humanoids of the opposite gender.
Dominating Dance: A level 7 Soul Dancer with at least 16 ranks in Perform (dance) can cause a Dominate effect, as the spell, to humanoids of the opposite gender, for the duration of the dance. Her suggestive dance ability can now affect monstrous humanoids of the opposite gender, and her charming dance ability can now affect both genders, and the fascinating dance can now affect any living creature that has a gender.
Enslaving Dance: A level 9 Soul Dancer with at least 18 ranks in Perform (dance) can Dominate a single humanoid of the opposite gender, as the spell, for a duration equal to one hour per round spent dancing. Her dominating dance ability can now affect monstrous humanoids of the opposite gender, and her suggestive dance ability can affect both genders, and her charming dance ability can affect any living creature which has a gender.

Surprise Attack: When an opponent is entranced with her dance or otherwise distracted, the Soul Dancer can make a devastating surprise attack with a hidden weapon. It functions exactly like a sneak attack, except the attack must come from a dagger or shuriken, and the quick draw feat must be used to draw the weapon immediately before the attack. The Soul Dancer cannot be armed at the beginning of the round that she makes a surprise attack. Opponents who are affected by any of her Enchanting Dance abilities are considered flat-footed for the purposes of making a Surprise Attack. If the Soul Dancer has the sneak attack ability from another source, the sneak attack damage stacks with the surprise attack damage, unless the surprise attack is made against an entranced opponent who is not normally considered flat-footed. All effects of her Enchanting Dance ability end if she makes a surprise attack against an opponent who is under the influence of the ability.

need a backslash, not a forward slash to close tags.

I'm actually [and i apologise for this] just commenting to say that that title would be an awesome line from a Bum Review (http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/bum-reviews)

"I was an assassin/exotic dancer fantasy once!"
