TikTok dance challenges have been growing in popularity partially because of having spent a majority of 2020 in quarantine. TikTok has literally pushed songs to the top of the charts and it’s not just limited to one single genre of music, there are plenty of reggaeton hits all over the social platform. Some of the biggest names in Latin music including Becky G, Daddy Yankee, and J Balvin have turned to TikTok when it comes to promoting their latest singles. Artists may create their own dance, like Jennifer Lopez did for her latest single “Cambia de Paso,” or celebs like Sofia Reyes might leave it up to her fans to choreograph her songs. Here are nine TikTok dance challenges to try this summer, and who knows, maybe your favorite artists will repost you!
