Ball dancing is a form of ritualistic trance dancing where the participant has balls, bells, weights, and/or fruits sewn or hooked to the skin. Over a period of many hours, the participant dances and the weights slowly tear out—if this happens too quickly the ecstatic trance state will not be reached—with the hope of bringing them to a transcendent state, though it should be noted that traditionally the weights were usually a fruit of some sort and these were not meant to be torn out instead the fruit would slowly shrivel and dry and then another piece would be added.
