"Dance Your Love Away" is a song by American artist Michael Paul written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.

The song became the basis of the Hazell Dean classic, "Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)". When Hazell Dean contacted Stock Aitken Waterman, they offered her to listen to the backing track of Divine's "You Think You're A Man". She liked it, so she needed a single with them. Matt Aitken came up with idea of using the backing track of "Dance Your Love Away " with re-written lyrics, which could be suitable for Hazell, who hated the chorus. Mike Stock and Matt Aitken rewrote it, with the song being re-titled "Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)".

"Dance Your Love Away" was released as a single in 1985.
