Some women can be seen without their headscarves, but their faces covered.
According to AP, it was unclear whether her statement was made under duress. Only one of the women, 17-year-old gymnast Maedeh Hojabri, has been identified.
"It wasn't incitement, I didn't want to encourage anyone, I didn't have an objective", she said.
Hojabri also appeared in some videos without a headscarf, an obligatory dress code for women in Iran.
Hojabri was one of a number of popular Instagram users arrested recently in Iran over the content of their videos; activists fear the country will ban the social media site, now one of the few western apps that hasn't been blocked.
A local news website reported that Hojabri and three other people were detained on similar charges and released on bail in recent weeks.
Captioning the video, he writes: 'If you tell people anywhere in the world that girls aged 17 and 18 are arrested due to their beauty, the joy of dance and accused of the crime of prostitution, and predators of children are free, they will laugh!
Hojabri has posted over 300 pictures and videos on Instagram and has over 44000 followers.
"I didn't work with a team, I received no training". Hojabri posted a new video just hours ago addressing her critics. "I only do gymnastics". The state banned the popular Telegram messaging app in May 2018 and Facebook and Twitter in 2009.
While little is known about the teen, her videos have been shared by hundreds of people since her arrest - with activists posting using the hashtag #dancing_isn't_a_crime.
