BTS and YouTube announce the Permission to Dance Challenge that will begin this 23 July running until 14 August exclusively on YouTube Shorts.
BTS invites the world to dance along with them to their new track, “Permission to Dance,” for the first-ever worldwide dance challenge on YouTube Shorts.
Anyone can create a 15-second YouTube Short right from the YouTube mobile app, replicating the core dance moves from the “Permission to Dance” 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 “Peace,” “Dance” and “Joy”.
As the “Permission to Dance” lyrics encourages listeners to move to the rhythm of their heartbeat, 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 favourite Shorts in a compilation video, so participants are encouraged to use hashtags #PermissiontoDance and #Shorts for their creations to be considered.
