"Heute Abend wollen wir tanzen geh'n" ("Tonight We Want to Go Dancing") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1959, performed in German by Alice & Ellen Kessler, also known as the Kessler Twins (Die Kessler-Zwillinge in Germany and Le Gemelle Kessler in Italy).
The song was performed sixth on the night (following the Netherlands' Teddy Scholten with "Een beetje" and preceding Sweden's Brita Borg with "Augustin"). At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 8th in a field of 11.
The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with the singers suggesting to a boy that they all go dancing "without a break till tomorrow morning".
It was succeeded as German representative at the 1960 Contest by Wyn Hoop with "Bonne nuit ma chérie".
