NOT SURE IF IVE EVER HEARD OF THIS LEGEND BUT I HAVE NOTICED THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF PRECODE STORIES WITH PEOPLE BEING DANCED TO DEATH.

Yeah, usually by a pair of haunted shoes...

As I'm sure many of you know, in the Brothers Grimm version of Snow White, the queen is forced to don red hot iron shoes and dance herself to death. I don't know if they added this part or if it was part of the folk story they collected, but it was typical of their stories (i.e. in Cinderella, the sisters cut off parts of their feet to get the slipper to fit and when he finds out he has birds peck their eyes out).
