Apple Fitness Plus Users Can Learn BTS Choreography Starting Next Week


When Apple Fitness Plus launched in 2020, it wasn’t just a way to showcase the new Dance activity on the Apple Watch, but also a subtle way to integrate other services like Apple Music. The fitness service has since added an Artist Spotlight series featuring famous musicians, so it’s no surprise that Apple is mixing it all up with dance workouts based on mega-popular K-pop group BTS.

The BTS collaboration is part of a content package for International Dance Day on April 29. Beginning next week, workouts will be led by Fitness Plus trainer Ben Allen and will feature choreography straight from BTS’s music videos. Some of the songs featured include hits like “Butter (feat. Megan Thee Stallion)”, “Dynamite”, “Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey)”, “DNA”, “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)”, “Permission dance” and “Life Goes On.” The band’s music will also be featured in different workout categories like HIIT over the next four weeks.

Music has always played an important role in Fitness Plus, with the ability to save playlists to users’ Apple Music accounts. That said, outside of the Latin Grooves genre, the featured artists are mostly English-speaking artists from the United States. However, the addition of K-pop makes sense given the popularity of the genre in the global market. Starting with BTS also makes sense, as the group was one of the top-selling groups in the United States in 2021 with 2.95 million digital song sales and four top-10 selling singles.

It’s not everything BTS, however. Apple is also adding a new dance collection called “Get into a Groove with Dance” and offering a limited-edition prize for International Dance Day. Collections are a relatively new addition to the service and are workout playlists curated for a specific goal like running a 5K. In addition to BTS, Apple is also adding Artist Spotlight sessions from ABBA and Queen.
