Ahead of International Dance Day on April 29, Apple announced a new dance collection for Fitness+ and more.
The Fitness + Artists Spotlight series, which returned on April 18, features dance workouts for ABBA, BTS and Queen. Entire workouts are dedicated to a single artist and this week begins with pop legends ABBA. Apple says that every Monday for the next four weeks, new workouts for each artist will debut across multiple types of workouts, including strength, HIIT, dance, treadmill, cycling, yoga and Pilates.
On April 25, Apple announced that Fitness+ will “celebrate dance all week”. Korean pop group BTS will be the Artists Spotlight Dance workout, with choreography taken from the group’s dance videos:
- “Butter (feat. Megan Thee Stallion),”
- “Dynamite”, “Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey)”,
- “DNA”, “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)”,
- “Permit to Dance”
- “Life goes on.”
On International Dance Day, a new limited-time Apple Watch prize will debut animated stickers for iMessage, after completing a dance workout of 20 minutes or more. The day will see a special dance section with workouts on Latin Grooves, Upbeat Anthems, Throwback Hits and Hip-Hop/R&B playlists to help users get their prize.
Apple announces that on April 25, a new collection of workouts called “Get into a Groove with Dance” will debut, featuring three 20-minute workouts from each Fitness + Dance trainer, in different musical genres.
Apple Fitness+ costs $12.99/month in Canada, or $99.99/year. It’s included with Apple One, and new Apple Watch users can get Fitness+ free for three months.
