A dance that symbolises an entire way of life that was supposedly very intense, meaningful and sensual, and intrinsic to the human and natural worlds, but that was in fact never lived. The literal dance itself never existed, and those who pretend to knowledge of it cannot agree on what the moves were. More generally, a myth in the most amorphous state possible.

Someone wrote a thesis on Renaissance painting and the acorn dance. It was rather sensual stuff and I still couldn't make head nor tail of it.
