It will be the first-ever worldwide dance challenge on YouTube Shorts by BTS!!
BTS and YouTube officially announce the worldwide ‘Permission to Dance’ Challenge for the first time ever. Starting this Friday, anyone from across the globe can create a 15-second YouTube Short right from the YouTube mobile app, replicating the core dance moves from the music video. The dance moves for this challenge are the “International Sign” gestures that the septet was seen doing in the music video, bearing the meaning ”Joy,” “Dance” and “Peace”.”
‘Permission to Dance’ lyrics encourages listeners to move to the rhythm of their heartbeat and BTS is bringing the world together again with this special dance and inviting people to add their own style to their YouTube Shorts creations.
As part of the challenge, BTS will be spotlighting some of their favorite Shorts in a compilation video, so participants are encouraged to use hashtags #PermissiontoDance and #Shorts for their creations to be considered.
Shin Young Jae, the General Manager of BIGHIT MUSIC said, “Just as ‘Permission to Dance’ sends the message that you don’t have to ask anyone for permission to dance, we hope that we can bring people all over the world together to dance along with us, free of any limits or constraint. We are very excited to watch this challenge come to life on YouTube Shorts and can’t wait to see what you all create.”
YouTube’s Global Head of Music Lyor Cohen said, “BTS are global icons, Breaking record after record on YouTube, BTS’ immense contribution to the world of music has made them an undeniable force. We are humbled to be partnering with them on the Permission to Dance challenge on YouTube Shorts, helping to spread happiness and build lasting connections amongst their fans on YouTube across the globe. We are stoked to see the ARMY dance!“
The worldwide dance Challenge is starting this Friday on 23rd July till Saturday, 14th August, exclusively on YouTube Shorts. So ARMY’s get ready to dance!!
