The Dance Collection is a compilation album by Donna Summer released in 1987 (see 1987 in music). Summer had become the biggest star of the disco era in the 1970s when signed to Casablanca Records. By 1987, Summer was signed to the Geffen label, and Casablanca had long since been bought out by Polygram. This album was released on Polygram's Casablanca label. It features some of her most famous songs from the disco era in their extended 12" versions, as they would often have been played in the clubs during their popularity.

The song "Bad Girls" was not included on the CD release. In 2003, the tracks from this compilation were remastered to form the 12" Singles & More bonus disc of the Bad Girls Deluxe Edition. On this new CD, "Bad Girls" appeared as it did on the original LP of The Dance Collection. However, "With Your Love" was replaced with the long version of "On The Radio". The release featured the 12" Single Mix of the "MacArthur Park Suite", rather than the original Live and More album version which appears on The Dance Collection.
