"Dance On!" is an instrumental by the British instrumental group, The Shadows.[1] It went to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart[2] and the Irish Singles Chart. 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.[1]

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, Clark 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".
