To make a young woman dance nude (Spell)

The result of this spell is similar to (if a little more disturbing than) To Compel one dance completely naked in Grand Grimoire, but the rituals are completely different.

From The Cambridge Book of Magic, Francis Young edition:

That women should dance in a house

Write these names on virgin parchment with the blood of a bat and place them beneath the threshold of a door: 'Vi: Ista: Lelia: Vegum: Iusto: Stamam.' And let it be so.

From The Book of Oberon, Dan Harms edition:

To make a maiden dance as followeth

First write in virgin parchment as wa[??] opvcns nepos castor popas cely puphas, lendula pendula, and say this I conjure thee per pater by the names that are written in thee, that whosoever came in here shall dance.

From Grimorium Verum, Plangiere edition:

To make a young woman dance nude

Write on virgin parchment the Character of FRUTIMIERE with the blood of a bat. Then put it on a blessed stone, over which a Mass has been said. After this when you want to use it, place the character under the sill or threshold of a door which she must pass.

When she comes past, she will come in. She will undress and be completely naked, and will dance increasingly until death, if one does not remove the character; with grimaces and contortions which will cause more pity than desire.

This spell invokes the demon Frutimière

The spell To Compel one dance completely naked is similar to this spell.
