An accompanying music video was directed by long-time collaborator Paul Hunter and choreographed by Frank Gatson, Jr. The video premiered during an episode of American Idol on April 5, 2012, where Lopez was a judge. Her boyfriend Casper Smart appears in the video. The music video for "Dance Again" opens on a black screen, with the words "Always remember - You will live, you will love, you will dance again" printed in white. Lopez is then shown entering a "zero-gravity" room, where a stream of vodka is flowing in the air. She looks up to an "orgy of scantily clad dancers", piled up on one another according to MTV's Jocelyn Vena. Lopez is airlifted from the ground, and joins the erotic orgy. The skirt she was wearing when she entered the room is ripped off, revealing a low-cut top. Smart then enters the room. Lopez and Smart partake in several different dance routines together in three locations.

Sarah Maloy of Billboard magazine noted the amount of sexual content in the music video, writing that it as "body glitter, random choreographed dance numbers, poles and sex-lots of sex. Oh and Pitbull's there too, hanging out on the sidelines while J.Lo gets dirty, dabbling in orgies and bondage". See more
