Starting July 23, ARMY (BTS fans) worldwide can use the new YouTube feature to create a 15-second short through the mobile app to participate until August 14.

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,” Big Hit Music General Manager Shin Young Jae said.

How to join the BTS “Permission to Dance” challenge?

Participants should replicate a portion of the choreography from the “Permission to Dance” music video — particularly the International Sign language gestures for “peace”, “dance”, and “joy” — and upload their 15-second Shorts video entries on their YouTube channel.

According to YouTube, entries with the hashtags #PermissiontoDance and #Shorts will then be screened by BTS and the group will decide on their favorites to include in a compilation video.
