Brian and Ellen learned the choreography in one day ....
Are you kidding me ?
They are too good...
The hand gesture with the 2 fingers on the opposite palm is sign language for “dance”, and the scratching of the body with the thumbs up and fingers curled is sign language for “fun”. It was so nice of BTS to incorporate International Sign Language in the choreography.

Just found this channel! Used to learn a lot of dances through self-teaching a *very* long time ago, and BTS has made me want to dance again. I'm so glad I found a mirrored and well explained video.

Note: Some of the gestures are sign language! So I think that's a really nice touch they added in!

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much!
For our school prom me and my friends decided to do a secret dance performance with arrangements made on the day with the dj, we weren’t even sure if our song would play (We followed your cover for Dynamite+added individual twists). After we performed we became the highlight of the night and I earned the title of Dancing King with a cute purple sash! We are planning to dance once again for our high school graduation dinner this december and this song is the one ☝️ Much Love
The power Army and BTS holds 💜

Ellen and Brian work so hard to do tutorials and dance cobers for us and this help me learn to dance. Ever since I started learning to dance, I've always been watching Ellen and Brian. I love dancing and I've started dancing about 5 or 6 months ago and they have helped me a lot. All I have to say is thank u Ellen and Brian for helping me and for any 1 who wants to dance, don't give up. I've improved a lot and I am going to continue to dance. Once again thank u Ellen and Brian😊

Fun fact at 19:10 when you were talking about the hand being the stage and the person dancing this is actually the ASL sign for dancing, and the one before was for fun/joy and the peace sign actually means peace XD

I can't stop imagining how amazing SF9 Tear Drop dance cover will look if you guys do it as a couple bcz the choreo is genderless and it makes it more intersting
ive gotten a taste of bts and i cant go anywhere

It's so true. Compared to the other choreography I've seen from BTS, Permission to Dance and Butter are really the easier routines.

ur so fast but i rlly appreciate your uploads !!! im still trying to learn butter but this will definitely be my next choreo to learn !! love the peace sign move during the point dance bc apparently it’s sign language for “dance” so it’s very fitting and inclusive for the deaf community 🥺 this choreo seems easy so i should be able to do this at least 😭 once again thank you for your uploads it’s helped me learn a lot of kpop choreo even though i am in no way a dancer
Herah Ali
Herah Ali:
Thanks Brian it has helped me so much, I'll again watch this video and dance with you along, just hoping for my leg injury to be healed!
I really watch only 2 channels for dance tutorials,as they are the only channels that actually help me. Your videos are really helpful to me, and to many people as well. Your explanation is not too big or tiring and I find it extremely easy to learn from you guys. Thank you so much for providing us this video so quickly, I was looking forward your tutorial... 💜💜💜💜
