Description

I guess it wants thrills... woke up still buzzed or... eyes like black holes. Bite marks all over me. But yo, I had like two grand in my gym shorts?
~ S.C. Ryder on Sacrifice Quote

DANCE-FOR-US, also known by their acronym DFU, seems to represent the idea of dancing and music. They can be sacrificed to and sent prayers if the player has the Light of Rebellion.

During the game's beta testing period (August-October 2018), DFU asked club members in dreams to pray to her and say her name three times. Enough players fulfilled her request, and she bestowed the "Gift Of Dance" gesture (a twirl) to all players. New players receive this gesture through the Reward Crate in the hideout upon first loading up the game.

DANCE-FOR-US has responded to Rituals and in these responses has shed insight into what is happening in Redacre, with the other Voices, and the sleepwalking adults. In this Recalled Dream, she tells the player "Our parents are trying to control everything, just like yours. But we need your help. You have to pray... Pray to us..."[1]. DFU has also explained that when SPEAK-AS-ONE "takes your body, they don't give it back! Sleep is death."[2] DANCE-FOR-US has also informed players that SAO has sent Stalkers after players, a kid who might have been your friend once, but now serves DFU's "parents".[3][4]

DFU has been known to possess children to make them dance, noted by CHORUS in the journal, Dancing Sickness. DFU has also apparently drawn the attention of SPEAK-AS-ONE and engages in mass prayer according to player interactions with fellow Voice, THEE-I-DARE[5]. A Steal mission objective requires players to set up a recording circle over DFU's icon before luring a Sleeper or Lucid into the recording circle. Once the enemy is in the circle, they begin to emote endlessly. Players must record several seconds of the enemy emoting, then the enemy kneels in the recording circle atop DFU's icon.
