Meeting Dance

Meeting Dance

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A dance often performed at the start of a sabbat meeting, when a number of covens have convened. It is a way for all of the Witches to meet the others present. One leader takes hands with another Witch and all join up in a long chain, alternating male and female. The leader then dances in a circle, gradually moving in, in a spiral. When the center is reached, he or she starts to lead out again but now as each Witch passes those going the other way, they kiss. The line continues until it has unwound again and everyone has kissed everyone else. The line may wind in to the center and out again a number of times.

One name for the meeting dance is Lufu, from the Anglo-Saxon word for "love."
