Dance of Death , also variously called Danse Macabre ( French ), Danza de la Muerte ( Spanish ), Danza Macabra (Italian), Dança da Morte (Portuguese), Totentanz ( German ), Dodendans ( Dutch ), Surmatants (Estonian), Dansa de la Mort (Catalan) is an artistic genre of late-medieval 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. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life.
