Child’s Dance is an album by American drummer and bandleader Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers recorded in 1972 and released on the Prestige label.

“After several years of few recordings, Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers re-emerged with totally new personnel on this Prestige LP. The strongest performance is a quartet feature for the great trumpeter Woody Shaw on “I Can’t Get Started,” but the other three selections (which include such musicians as George Cables or John Hicks on keyboards, bassist Stanley Clarke and Ramon Morris on reeds) are also worth hearing and sound surprisingly “contemporary” for the time. An interesting set.” (Scott Yanow, AllMusic).

Track listing:
“C.C.” (Stanley Clarke) – 12:18
“Child’s Dance (Christian’s Song)” (Ramon Morris) – 7:40
“Song for a Lonely Woman” (Stanley Clarke) – 9:40
“I Can’t Get Started” (Vernon Duke, Ira Gershwin) – 7:30
