Wiggledancing! Live On Stage (dubbed by Fans as The Wiggles' DANCE! Tour) is a Wiggles live Tour from 2006.

The first leg of the Tour began on July 28, in Birmingham, AL, and finished on August 27 in North Charleston, South Carolina. It is one of the Tours where Sam frequently filled in for Greg and the last before he took over as the Yellow Wiggle. This was also the last Tour that Greg performed in until Getting Strong Live in Concert! in 2012. Greg's final performances at the time was the shows on August 19-20, 2006 in Philadelphia, PA. On the Morning of August 22 before two scheduled Performances in Kingston, Rhode Island, Greg fainted during the meet and greet before the first Show was performed and was treated at a Hospital for dehydration, so Sam had to quickly put on the Yellow Skivvy and fill in for him for both Shows. The next day, before another two Performances in Washington, D.C, they let Greg have a rest after his Hospital Visit so they filmed a Segment with him explaining his absence before collapsing again after filming it, he then returned Home to Australia to have more tests done.

The second leg of the Tour took place primarily on the East Coast (with some early November shows taking place in Canada) and began on October 20, 2006, at University Park (more commonly known as Penn State), PA, and finished on November 21, 2006, in Sunrise, Florida. Because Greg Page was told by his doctors in Australia to not tour overseas due to his condition (Orthostatic Intolerance), Sam Moran filled in during the leg as the Yellow Wiggle. Greg subsequently announced his first retirement a few days after the Tour's completion on November 30, 2006, which was also the Day when the Racing to the Rainbow Show began in Australia.
