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.
A preliminary version of the song was recorded in February 1978 at Sound Palace Studios in New York, 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). As with the other tracks included on Minneapolis Genius, additional recording was done by Pepé Willie at Blue Wave Recording Studio, St. Philip, Barbados. The original 1978 version remains unreleased.
In 1995, it was included as the second track on the first disc of Symbolic Beginning (re-released in 1999 as The Early Years and in 2020 as 94 East Featuring Prince) and as the fifth track on One Man Jam released in 2000.
