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. The singles featured on the album were their 1964 landmark single, "Dancing in the Street", their follow-up smash, "Wild One", and the hit "Nowhere to Run" and its b-side, "Motoring".

Martha & the Vandellas had enjoyed some serious hits from 1964 onward, but hadn't quite measured up in the LP department until the release of Dance Party in the spring of 1965. Even the rest was hardly filler, however, with Martha Reeves turning in a gloriously impassioned performance on the ballad "There He Is (At My Door)" and the group acquitting itself beautifully on "Motoring. Each side was always good for at least two plays at any self-respecting teen party of the '60s, and it all still holds up today.

The album ''Dance Party'', with its frenetic rhythms and characteristic rough sound was just what soul fans had been waiting for and almost everybody wanted it in their collection, especially since many of the numbers had already been successfully released as singles. The LP is rounded off with popular Motown numbers such as ''Mickey's Monkey'' and ''Hitch Hike'' with the result that Martha and the Vandellas not only produced their most successful LP, but almost certainly their best dance album
