Additional Information: 

The phrase “Fancy dancy” has indeterminate origins, but it can be found in print as far back as 1861, when the Red Bluff Beacon quoted an opinion piece in the La Crosse Democrat on the details of going on a date to a dance cautioning, “don’t take a girl to a fancy dancy party unless you know all the ropes!”
