A cage dance is a specific type of erotic dance, performed inside a cage, usually at a night club or dance hall. The activity originated in the 1960s and rose in popularity with the advent of disco music. In particular, the practice began at the Los Angeles music venue, Whisky a Go Go.

Though the club was billed as a discothèque, meaning only recordings with no bands, the Whisky A Go-Go opened with a live band led by Johnny Rivers and a short-skirted DJ spinning records between sets from a suspended cage at the right of the stage. When the female DJ danced during Rivers' set, the audience thought it was part of the act and the concept of Go-Go dancers in cages was born.

More recently, both genders practice cage dancing. Go-go boys, for example, can regularly be seen in cages at night clubs frequented by homosexuals.
