Dancey Dancey  adj. (/ˌdɑːnsɪ ˌdɑːnsɪ/) [1]

  1. of, relating to, or resembling dance


Dancey Dancey is a phrase created by Ian and Rufus after they were reunited in the manga 18 Convergence.



Upon seeing his beloved pet, Ian proceeded to grab his paws and dance around with him shouting Dancey Dancey, to which Rufus replied with 'Ian, let go of me! This is no time for Dancey.' They danced anyway, provoking Johnny K. Gambino to come up to their room and smash their record player.

Gaians loved this phrase and 'This is no time for Dancey Dancey!' or 'There is always time for Dancey Dancey!' appeared in many picture edits posted around the Gaia Community Discussion.

Dancey Dancey was later mentioned in manga 22 Prom Drama, with Rufus wanting to Dancey Dancey at the Gaia Prom just like old times.


  • There is also a game room for Gaia Pinball entitled 'Dancey Dancey all the time room'.
  • During the Halloween 2k7 event a downloads section included two wallpapers of Rufus, with 'dancey dancey tiem nao?' written on them.[2]
  • In the Gaia Runway there is a theme titled Dancey Dancey with the description "It's dancy dancy time. Showcase your moves. Don't let Rufus down!".
