Apple launching new Fitness+ Dance Collection and more for International Dance Day
Beginning next week, Apple Fitness+ is introducing a new Dance Collection, a new Apple Watch Activity Challenge award, and more in celebration of International Dance Day, with Apple hosting a special Artist Spotlight Dance workout featuring music and iconic choreography from BTS, a limited-edition award for International Dance Day, and the new “Get into a Groove with Dance” workout Collection.
Starting April 25, Apple Fitness+ will celebrate dance all week long. Fitness+ trainer Ben Allen will share a first-of-its-kind Artist Spotlight Dance workout set to the music of BTS. The moves featured in the special International Dance Day workout will be taken directly from the choreography in BTS videos. Songs include “Butter (feat. Megan Thee Stallion),” “Dynamite,” “Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey),” “DNA,” “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix),” “Permission to Dance,” and “Life Goes On.”
Also that week, LaShawn Jones’s Dance workout will inspire users to move to songs that bring on a feeling of joy, and Jhon Gonzalez will invite users to dance to tracks that celebrate traditional and powerful rhythms from different genres, including cumbia, tango, and Indian pop.
Apple Fitness+ is also unveiling a new workout Collection on April 25 designed to get subscribers dancing any day of the year. “Get into a Groove with Dance” starts with three 20-minute workouts from each of the Fitness+ Dance trainers to “Get on the Dance Floor.” Apple says subscribers start with short routines before progressing to “Take Center Stage” with three 30-minute performance-based workouts.
To honour all things music and dance, Apple is hosting a special Apple Watch Activity Challenge for users around the world on April 29, rewarding participants who completing any Dance workout of 20 minutes or more using their Apple Watch with a limited-edition award and animated stickers for Messages.
