dance mania - Dance Mania, also known as the St. Vitus dance, affected men, women, and children, and was prevalent from the mid 14th to the early 17th centuries. Mobs of people, sometimes numbering into the thousands, would spontaneously gather outdoors, and would scream, shout, and sing, while dancing uncontrollably and bizarrely. The \"dance"\ would sometimes last for weeks, while participants continued until each fell into complete exhaustion.    Some historians believe that disease was the cause, but many agree that the phenomenon occurred during times of great stress. There were many common causes of stress through those ages, including the effects of poverty, wars, and religious pogroms. Especially stressful were the days leading up to the end of the world predicitions, and were met with great fear and trepidation.

e.g., A period of increasing nervous anxiety has returned to haunt our world. Time ticks down to December 21, 2012, a day that several ancient, and perhaps credible, prophecies predict the termination of life on earth. The lost Mayan civilization has handed down to us a precise, mathematically accurate calendar that concludes exactly on the 21st of this December. Doomsday believers also point to Nostradamus, a famed 16th century seer, whose past predictions have ostensibly come true, and who forecast a fatal collision between earth and a comet in 2012. In addition, several centuries-old native tribes, in North America and in India, have legends that foretell the end of days this year.    As tensions increase while we approach winter, will Dance Mania resurrect? Coming into December, will the poor come pouring out of their tenements, the rich from their gated estates, the young out of the discos and dance halls, and the elderly from their retirement communities, in a dancing frenzy that explodes from the buildup of enormous stress and strain?    Will you come out of your house to join them -- your voice yelling, singing, shouting, screaming, while your body contorts, jerks, spasms, spins, twists, and turns around, and around, and around, in a wild danse macabre, over and over, hour after hour, until you fall to the ground, unconscious, your mind and body completely drained?    And will you awaken the next morning, along with everyone else, anxiously await the magic hour that passes into night -- then, the next morning, week, month, year, year after year, as did the seasons after all the past predictions of Armageddon?    Or will it be different this time? Will the predictions come true? Will, horror of horrors, fire and brimstone consume the earth? Will civilization and the mighty efforts and works of all Mankind burn and blow away? And will our sun flicker, and as the music fades, will the "whirled" finally come to an end?
