BTS’ “Permission to Dance” Choreography Incorporates International Sign Language Bringing ARMYs Together

Sign language for dance

BTS released the music video for “Permission to Dance” and it has been received very positively, excitedly and there are hidden messages that will probably be revealed as the days go by. When it comes to BTS, they always have a reason for everything they do, be it music, style, concept photos and even lyrics. The music video has an amazing choreography and the dance moves are easy enough to dance to and will soon become a viral hit. BTS have always spoken about Loving yourself and inclusivity. Part of RM’s United Nations speech spoke of that, “Tell me your story. I want to hear your voice, and I want to hear your conviction. No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin colour, gender identity: speak yourself” RM

Big Hit Music, explained that the choreography for the song incorporates international sign language for words like “happy” “dance” and “peace,” which all have positive meanings and are easy to follow for everyone. BTS’ V has sometimes used sign language to communicate with ARMY, this was seen during his “Dear Class of 2020” commencement speech. This just goes to show how much the mega band wants to include everyone in their delivery of their music and everyday life.

The international sign languages explained: The movement of stretching out the thumb and scratching the other finger with half-bent motion means “enjoyable,”, The movement of two fingers of the other hand on the palm to the end means “dancing” and the movement of creating a V with both hands is a symbol of “peace.”

TESTIMONIALS of how the use of sign language has impacted lives

BTS are not just idols or celebrities, they are the perfect definition of humility, empathetic, kindness, mindfulness, love, deep thinkers, did I mention humility… and whatever word you can create from the alphabet that is positive.

It is absolutely true as RM said in a speech at the end of their New Jersey concert that music transcends, language, countries and races…. adding to that, people with disabilities, whether blue, orange, purple, whatever.. we all have one thing in common, we are human, we need love, we need each other and love is a universal language
