The Călusari were the members of a Romanian fraternal secret society who practiced a ritual acrobatic dance known as the călus. According to the Romanian historian Mircea Eliade, the Călusari were known for "their ability to create the impression of flying in the air" which he believed represented both the galloping of a horse and the dancing of the fairies (zine).
