I wonder if a gem / a sentry ward or dust reveals Slark's Ultimate "Shadow Dance".

Slark is not entirely invisible, as one can still see the little cloud he hides in. This means that he can't be directly targeted rather than being plain invisible.

As to answer the question: No, GoTS and Wards do not reveal Slark (neither does anything else).

Plenty of spells can hit him while "Invisible" though, as stated here

Appreciated. Still, the concept of Slark's invisibility - although mechanically is closer to actual invisiblity - feels like it's strategic use is closer related to the BKB – user1337 Apr 30 '14 at 10:01
Yeah, off the top of my head, the only AoE stun that goes through BKB is Warlock's ult. – Kenneth Apr 30 '14 at 11:01
There are quite a few others, like Enigma's Black Hole, Faceless Void's Chronosphere and Clockwerk's hookshot. Here's a bigger list...… – Costa Apr 30 '14 at 14:05
