"Dancing mania" occurred in 13-17th century Europe. Groups of people danced wildly through the streets, often foaming at the mouth and speaking in tongues until they collapsed. This was all due to consuming poisonous rye bread made from ergot-infected grain or the Claviceps purpurea fungi, which today is used to produce the psychedelic drug, LSD.
