Love and Dancing is a remix album released by the British synthpop band The Human League in 1982. It was released under the name "The League Unlimited Orchestra" as a nod to Barry White's disco-era Love Unlimited Orchestra. The album was principally the idea and work of producer Martin Rushent and contained remixes of many of the songs from the band's multi-platinum selling album Dare, along with a version of the track "Hard Times", which had originally been the B-side of the single "Love Action". It was conceived to take advantage of the unexpected huge success of Dare and also designed as a stopgap while the Human League worked on new material.[3]

Rushent described working on Love and Dancing during an interview in 2007:

The album reached number three in the UK Albums Chart and was later certified Platinum by the BPI.

In 2002, the album Dare and Love and Dancing were remastered and re-issued together on one CD.
