A rain dance is a ceremonial dance that is performed in order to invoke rain and to ensure the protection of the harvest. Rain dances can be found in many cultures, from Ancient Egypt to certain Native American tribes. They could still be found in the 20th century Balkans, in a ritual known as Paparuda (Romanian) or Perperuna (Slavic).
