"Dance for You" is a song by American singer Beyoncé for the deluxe edition of her fourth studio album, 4 (2011).

It was written by Beyoncé, Terius "The-Dream" Nash and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, while production was handled by the former two.

"Dance for You" is a midtempo R&B and synthpop song, in which Beyoncé adopts sensual vocals. The instrumental elements used on it include echoing drum patterns and clapping synthesizers. In "Dance for You", Beyoncé, as the female protagonist, speaks of the love she has for her man and about all the things she will do to show him her appreciation.

"Dance for You" was well received by contemporary music critics, who noted its similarity to songs by Janet Jackson; they also praised its production and Beyoncé's vocals. Following the release of 4, "Dance for You" charted at number 200 on the South Korean International Singles Chart, and at number 147 on the UK Singles Chart.

Though the song was never released as a single, it appeared on several charts in the United States based on radio support. "Dance for You" reached number 78 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number six on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Its music video was directed by Beyoncé and Alan Ferguson. The clip debuted on November 25, 2011 and was placed on the concert DVD Live at Roseland: Elements of 4 (2011). Inspired by 1940's film noir, the video is shot in black-and-white and captures Beyoncé dancing and flipping her hair in a detective's office to seduce him. Critics wrote that the video contains some of Beyoncé's best and most sensual moves, called her a femme fatale, and commented that its concept effectively matched the song's lyrics.
