"Dance Party" is a 1965 album released by American Motown and soul girl group Martha and the Vandellas on the Gordy (Motown) label. The album was the group's third and much like The Miracles' "Mickey's Monkey" album mainly consisted of dance tunes. Among the singles featured on the album include their 1964 landmark single, "Dancing in the Street", their follow-up smash, "Nowhere to Run", the hit, "Wild One", and the famous b-side, "Motoring". The album was mostly produced by William "Mickey" Stevenson with several nods from Holland-Dozier-Holland.
