  • Spiral dance, also called the Grapevine dance and the Weaver’s dance, is a neo-pagan dance, popular at festivals and often used as a greeting. Considered an excellent way to raise energy, the Spiral dance gets its name from the movements of the dancers. Dancers first stand in a circle holding hands, then a dancer opens the circle and leads the rest of the dancers in the line in a spiral into a center point, and then out to a circle again, usually with several convolutions. During the dance, every participant faces every other at some point and may kiss as a greeting.
