Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (Dancing Eyes, Dancing Feet Syndrome) is a rare neurological disorder characterized by cerebellar nuclei degeneration.

Opsoclonus is identified by weird involuntary horizontal and vertical rapid eye movements.The movement is  neither rhythmic nor coordinated.

Myoclonus indicates sudden, quick jerks of a muscle.

In children this condition is often associated with neuroblastoma.
