...there is indeed a way to document dancing. In fact,
there are many. See Edward Tufte's "Envisioning
Information" for a summary, and Ann Hutchinson Guest's
1985 "A brief survey of 53 systems of dance notation"
for details. There are similar things for the martial
arts, but they're not (in my limited experience) as
sophisticated or nuanced.

Tony Markos asks:

And how many of these systems rely on written text to
describe a dance? (Good God, can you imagine trying
learn dancing from a text-only description!)
