The channel's 10-year anniversary on March 2 will be marked with a "lively" lineup of programmes on the impact of disco music, said the BBC.
The Joy Of Disco looks at how a style of music that was originally mocked by the world went on to help define a generation, while Disco At The BBC showcases a range of great performances by artists.
Since BBC Four replaced the BBC Knowledge channel in 2002 as a "culturally enriching" network, the channel has covered subjects ranging from Doris Day to the A303.
The digital channel was rumoured to be facing the axe last year under the BBC's cost cutting drive, but instead it was announced that the network will be "refocused" to play more of a "supporting role" to parent network BBC Two.
BBC Four reaches 9.8m viewers each week, and crucially has the highest audience appreciation levels of any BBC channel. Last year, BBC Four's audience share rose by 18% to an average of 1.3%, while the share has increased further to an average of 1.7% so far in 2012.
The network enjoyed its best ever spell at Christmas 2011, averaging a 2% audience share. This was largely down to "heavyweight" programmes, including the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, which was watched by more than 1m viewers, and performances of The Nutcracker and Cinderella.
Last year, BBC Four scooped Broadcast Digital's 'Factual Channel of the Year' and won a string of industry awards for programmes such as Secret Life Of The National Grid, The Road To Coronation Street, Getting On, The Killing and Zimbabwe's Forgotten Children.
BBC Four controller Richard Klein said: "It is an honour and a delight to be looking after BBC Four on its 10th birthday and I can think of no better way to celebrate this than with mirror balls, platform shoes and the Bee Gees. Blow-dried hair is optional."
Also celebrating its tenth anniversary this spring is digital radio station BBC 6 Music, which will stage a series of special concerts featuring artists such as Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys, folk singer Laura Marling and John Lydon's Public Image Limited.
