Dancing mania (also known as dancing plague, choreomania, St John's Dance and historically St. Vitus' Dance) was a social phenomenon that occurred primarily in mainland Europe between the 14th and 17th centuries. It involved groups of people, sometimes thousands at a time, who danced uncontrollably and bizarrely. They would also scream, shout, and sing, and claim to have visions or hallucinations. The mania affected men, women, and children, who danced until they collapsed from exhaustion. One of the first major outbreaks was in Aachen, Germany, in 1374, and it quickly spread throughout Europe; one particularly notable outbreak occurred in Strasbourg in 1518.

Affecting thousands of people across several centuries, dancing mania was not a one-off event, and was well documented in contemporary reports. It was nevertheless little understood, and remedies were based on guesswork. Generally, musicians accompanied dancers, to help ward off the mania, but this tactic sometimes backfired by encouraging more to join in. There is no consensus among modern-day scholars as to the cause of dancing mania. The several theories proposed range from religious cults being behind the processions, to people dancing to relieve themselves of stress and put the poverty of the period out of their minds. Some believe that dancing mania lives on today, in forms such as all-night raves, laughing epidemics, and other episodes of mass hysteria.

Eli siis, porukka soitti musiikkia, oli onnellisia ja tanssi vapautuneesti, ja se oli niin sairasta että sitä piti koittaa hoitaa? Mitä vittua kumpihan on oikeesti sitä sairasta?

Taidan lähtee huomenna vittuillakseni kylälle tanssiin. Enkä tarvi edes musiikkia.
