Definition of Chorea
Chorea: Ceaseless rapid complex body movements that look well coordinated and purposeful but are, in fact, involuntary.
Chorea was thought suggestive of a grotesque dance. The term "chorea" is derived from the Greek word "choreia" for dancing (as is choreography).Source: MedTerms™ Medical Dictionary
