List of Billboard number-one dance hits

This is a list of number-one dance hits as recorded by Billboard magazine's Hot Dance Club Play chart — a weekly national survey of popular songs in U.S. dance clubs. It began on October 26, 1974 under the title Disco Action chart. It is compiled by Billboard exclusively from playlists submitted by nightclub disc jockeys, who must apply and meet certain criteria to become "Billboard-reporting DJs".

Below are links to lists showing the songs that have topped the chart. Dates shown represent "week-ending" Billboard issue dates.

Billboard has adopted former publication rival Record World's chart statistics from the weeks between March 29, 1975, and August 21, 1976, into their Hot Dance Club Play chart history, as Billboard did not publish a national chart during this time (Billboard published multiple charts featuring regional- or city-specific hits during this era).

From the chart's inception until the week of February 16, 1991, several (or even all) songs on an EP or album could occupy the same position if more than one track from a release was receiving significant play in clubs. Beginning with the February 23, 1991, issue, Hot Dance Club Play became "song specific", meaning that only one song could occupy each position at a time.

Below are links to lists showing the songs that have topped the chart. Dates shown represent "week-ending" Billboard issue dates.
