This spring, Apple Fitness+, the fitness and wellness service built entirely around Apple Watch, is celebrating music and dance with a new lineup of Artist Spotlight musicians and curated Dance content in the lead-up to International Dance Day on April 29.
Introduced this week, the new Artist Spotlight sessions will include music by ABBA, BTS, and Queen. Additionally, new Dance content will be available next week, including a special Artist Spotlight Dance workout featuring music and choreography from BTS, a limited-edition award for International Dance Day, and the new “Get into a Groove with Dance” workout Collection.
The Fitness+ Artist Spotlight series returned April 18 with pop legends ABBA, global K-pop phenomenon BTS, and rock icons Queen. The series dedicates an entire workout playlist to a single artist, and this week, users can dance to ABBA, sweat to BTS in a HIIT workout, or do a Strength workout to Queen.
Every Monday for four weeks, new workouts featuring each artist will appear in Fitness+ across different workout types, including Strength, HIIT, Dance, Treadmill, Cycling, Yoga, and Pilates. Previous Artist Spotlight workouts have featured music by Alicia Keys, the Beatles, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Shakira, and more.
Apple Music and Apple One subscribers can enjoy the Fitness+ Spotlight series, which features a unique playlist for each individual Artist Spotlight musician. Starting April 25, Fitness+ will celebrate dance all week long.
On International Dance Day, Apple Watch users around the world can earn a limited-edition award and animated stickers for Messages for completing any Dance workout of 20 minutes or more. Fitness+ will feature a special section of Dance workouts to help subscribers earn the award, including six 20-minute workouts across Latin Grooves, Upbeat Anthems, Throwback Hits, and Hip-Hop/R&B playlists.
