The Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album (from 2015: Best Dance/Electronic Album) is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards, to recording artists for quality albums in the dance music and electronica genres. Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position".
From 2005 to 2011 the award was known as Best Electronic/Dance Album
From 2012 to 2014 the award was known as Best Dance/Electronica Album
From 2015 the award will be known as Best Dance/Electronic Album
In June 2014, NARAS announced a small change in the naming of the category, from Dance/Electronica to Dance/Electronic. It was agreed that "the title for this genre has evolved, and updating it more accurately represents the industry nomenclature of today.", according to the Grammy committee.
According to the category description guide, the award is presented "for albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental electronica/dance recordings". It is intended for "groove-oriented recordings with electronic-based instrumentation". Compilation or remixed recording albums are not eligible for this category.
