Abstract: We present a tool for rapid deployment of Virtual Observatory compliant services. Users who want to publish their datasets to the Virtual Observatory can achieve this goal without having to deal with the technical details of standard services development and without having to move their data. With VODance users just have to provide a database connection to our center that points to their available data and fill out a metadata description form without having to export their data. Data Access Layer services are created on the fly and published, through the Italian Astronomical Archive Center (IA2), to the Virtual Observatory. VODance has been successfully used to publish Cone Search and Simple Image Access Protocol services out of MySQL and Oracle database management systems.
