Welcome to the Dance is the fifth studio album by all-female German pop group No Angels, released by Polydor and Universal Music Domestic throughout German-speaking Europe on 11 September 2009. The band's second post-reunion effort following their reformation as a quartet in 2007, it was written, produced and recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles, and New York City between the years of 2008 and 2009, featuring production by Nasri, Hakim Bell, Bill Blast, Adam Messinger, and Aaron Pearce, among others.
After releasing lukewarm-received comeback album Destiny (2007) and their performance at the ESC 2008, the band collaborated with a range of American and Canadian producers and songwriters on the album. Pursuing a new musical direction, Welcome to the Dance took the group's work further into the dance and electronic genre, introducing a more international sound. However, upon release, the album received generally mixed reviews by critics, who criticized the band for their missing individuality
