Please help me identify this song!

I learned it as a boy... I remember there being one sheet of music, sautille throughout. Also, it was called "something something," where I believe the first something was an evil mythical creature, like a goblin or a witch or a vampire and the second something was an activity, like a party or a dance or a parade.

Argh it's making me crazy, because I force all my poor students to learn this song and I can't even tell them what it's called.

The Dance Of The Goblins by Antonio Bazzini, maybe?

Elfin Dance? Is it this?

Nevermind, I didn't realize there was a video of you actually playing the song. hmm.. well at least I got the sautille right. They are pretty similar, except the Dance of the Elves is less ominous.

Is it Devil's Dream?

Response by poster: Nope, definitely not Devil's Dream...and Elfin Dance is similar but not it either. Hrm.

Response by poster: And most definitely not the Bazinni... should have put that in the intro.

This might be a long shot, but there is a song in Practical Method for the Violin, Book 4 called "Goblins' Frolic."

(I can't find a digital version of the sheet music or an audio file, so this is based completely on the title, and the fact that it's in an instructional book for the violin. Like I said, a long shot.)
