Touch Dance is a remix album by the British pop duo Eurythmics. It was released in May 1984 by RCA Records and contains dance remixes of four tracks from Eurythmics' Touch album, by John 'Jellybean' Benitez and François Kevorkian, who were noted producers in the New York City club scene. It also includes three instrumental mixes.

Annie Lennox has said in interviews that she disliked the record, as it was too much of a commercial product and was put together by RCA with little involvement from her and Dave Stewart.[2]
