If You Feel Like Dancin' is the first track on 94 East's first collection of studio recordings Minneapolis Genius, featuring Prince on guitar and synthesizer. Soon after the album's release, If You Feel Like Dancin' was released as the album's second and final single. The track has featured on every collection of 94 East's early recordings. In 1992, it was included as the third track on the first disc of Minneapolis Genius - Featuring Prince (as If You Feel Like Dancin' (Instr.)). In 1995, the original, previously-unreleased, version was included as the second track on the first disc of Symbolic Beginning (re-released in 1999 as The Legends Collection). In 2000, it was included as the second track on 94 East Featuring Prince. Also in 2000, it was included as the fifth track on the first disc of One Man Jam. In 2002, it was included as the second track on the first disc of If You Feel Like Dancin'.

A preliminary version of the song was recorded on 17 February, 1979 at Music Farm Studios in New York, NY, USA, during a day of sessions led by Pepé Willie intended for Tony Silvester, leader of the group The Main Ingredient to use as demos for Little Anthony and the Imperials, who he wanted to produce (the one-day session also produced One Man Jam, I Feel For You, Thrill You Or Kill You, With You and André Cymone's original version of Do Me, Baby). As with the other tracks included on Minneapolis Genius, additional recording was done by Pepé Willie, for which details are not known.
