|Within Temptation EPs chronology|
The Dance is the first EP from Dutch then Gothic Metal band Within Temptation. It was released after the single "Restless" and the album Enter. The sound is rather gothic and melancholic, unlike the later albums, e.g. Mother Earth and The Silent Force.
It features the original songs "The Dance", "Another Day" and "The Other Half (of Me)". It also included a remix of the single "Restless" and a joint remix of the songs "Candles" and "Pearls of Light". The original versions of these songs appeared on the band's previous album Enter.
It, along with Enter, were re-released in the US on September 18, 2007 by the label Season of Mist. After the great reception of later albums and the Hydra World Tour, Nuclear Blast decided to release a together re-issue of both Enter and The Dance on November 10, 2014, in order to give the new listeners access to the band early material.
All three songs from The Dance premiered live in 1997, with The Dance and The Other Half (of Me) being performed often, and Another Day on select dates. The Dance and The Other Half (of Me) were played until 2002. After that, The Dance was only played a few times in 2005, and The Other Half (of Me) was played at select shows between 2005 and 2007. The Other Half (of Me) was last played in 2008, for the Black Symphony show in Rotterdam.
