Asteroid 37530, Dancingangel, was discovered on September 11, 1977 by Nikolai S. Chernykh at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory. It has a period of 3 years, 89 days.

It was named for Ukrainian champion dancer Ekaterina Pavlova (1991-2010), of the Crimea.

The meaning of Dancingangel seems to be: beneficial (Henk Middelraad); possibly, how much good you can do in a limited amount of time (that is, "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin").
