Keightley, Thomas - Fee dancing
Type of Spiritual Experience
We have folk dances that have long since been forgotten but whose memory lives in various folk tales, within this context a Fee is not a fairy but a person capable of getting you to the fairies, for example…………
A description of the experience
Thomas Keightley – World Guide to Fairies etc
The Fees of Northern France are ….. fond of dancing in the night time, and in their dances which are circular they form Cercles des Fees, or fairy rings. If any one approaches their dance, he is irresistibly impelled to take part in it. He is admitted with the greatest of courtesy; but as the whirling movement increases and goes faster and faster, his head becomes giddy and he falls to the ground utterly exhausted. Sometimes the Fees amuse themselves by flinging him up to a great height in the air, and, if not killed by the fall, he is found next morning full of bruises.
