As Reginald swept her into the turn, face contorted in a rictus of merriment, he hissed a warning in her ear. “Keep dancing! For God’s sake, keep dancing! If they realize we’re released from their bizarre mind control, they’ll rend us limb from limb!”

There is a scene to this effect in John Buchan’s novel The Three Hostages (1924). One female hostage (having been hypnotised) is hidden in plain view as a nightclub dancer.
