"Dance" is the third music video and single from Stan's forthcoming studio album. It is the singer's invitation to dance for her fans around the world. Its positive lyrics and upbeat music makes it the perfect song for the summer. Stan adds her own personal brand of fresh look and conīŦdent attitude, giving the video the same kind of vitality and energy that she evokes during her concerts. "Sometimes creativity hits you when you least expect it. Last year, I just started humming the chorus to 'Dance.' I recorded it on my phone, pitched the idea to my team at Fonogram, and this year, we have the song!" she exclaimed.
Her music video is an explosion of energy and sex appeal. "Well, the video was directed by Khaled Mokhtar and you feel that explosion of energy when you watch it. The shooting took place in three different locations in Bucharest, during three days. The video choreography was prepared by Emil Rengle, my choreographer, who also put his magic touch on the 'Cherry Pop' and 'Thanks For Leaving' music videos," she said.
As Digital Journal reported, her "Dance" single and its video, were both well-received, earning an A rating.
"'Dance' gives you this great energy, helps you express your feelings and this is what this song is all about. There are certain days in one's life when you feel down and lost. Well, when you're having such a bad day, I'll be there for you, to take your hand and make you dance your problems away! So, for the ones who will listen to this song, I want them to express their emotions by dancing with me," she said with a smile.

On her inspiration to co-write "Dance," she remarked, "When you are composing, you get inspired by people, stories and by the beautiful and amazing things that you see around you. I got inspired by my new love: dancing! Last year, I decided that I wanted to get more involved in my performances on stage so I started working with an amazing choreographer, Emil Rengle."
The Romanian beauty added, "This is how I got to rediscover myself as an artist, through dancing. Nevertheless, dancing taught me that you can express as many feelings through it, as you can express through the lyrics of a song. In these circumstances, who wouldn't feel inspired."
Stan hinted that her second studio album will be launching very soon. "We are now adding the final touches," she revealed.
For her fans, she concluded, "I want to invite everyone to dance! Actually, this song is an incentive for the people around the world to start living their lives to the fullest, find true love, and enjoy the unique moments life and love offer us. I would like to let all my people know that I'll always be there for them."
