Dance On! is an instrumental by the British guitar group, The Shadows. It went to number 1 in Ireland and the UK. It was also recorded in a vocal version by British female soloist Kathy Kirby, whose version reached number 11 in the UK chart in September 1963.

Petula Clark recorded the song in French (Je me sens bien auprès de toi) and Italian (Sto volentieri con te) which made the Top 5 of the French and Italian charts. She also recorded an English version for album release on the Canadian market.

In 1963 Petula recorded a vocal version of another Shadows UK chart topper, "Foot Tapper", mainly for the French market and sung entirely in French as "Mon Bonheur Danse".
