[noun & phrase]
the dance of death; an artistic genre of late-mediaeval allegory on the universality of death: no matter one’s station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. The Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a pope, emperor, king, child, and labourer.
Etymology: French - danse (from Middle English daunsen, from Anglo-Norman dancer, dauncer, “to dance”) + macabre (origin uncertain, potentially to be identified with Mediaeval Latin chorēa Machabaeōrum, a representation of the deaths of Judas Maccabaeus and his brothers).
