Copyright of dance moves


I wonder, is there any legal consequences if I copy dance moves from popular video clips? Like not the whole coreography, more like a fragment, couple of seconds. Like in League of Legends, they use a lot of well known dance coreographies. ->
How does this work? Do I have to contact the owners of the song to put it in the game? Or is it free to use, since you can’t really copyright several dance moves?

I want to animate several dance moves in my game, but would hate to remove it due to copyright issues, or worse get fined( or worse, expelled ).
My game is going to be free to play, but I’m also interested about it if the game is commercial.
