This article is a sponsored collaboration between FILA and PAPER
This year has been rough no doubt, but FILA’s new dance challenge #UpTheBeat will make your day a bit better — and help make a difference. The brand’s dance was choreographed by The Williams Family, the award-winning brothers, who you’ve seen compete on America’s Got Talent and World of Dance, and it’s set to SAINt JHN’s 2020 single, “Gorgeous.”
PAPER and FILA joined forces on the #UpTheBeat challenge with some of our favorite TikTok dance stars: Brian Esperon, the choreographer who famously created that “WAP” dance; and Amanda LaCount, who started out on America’s Got Talent and just last year danced in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show. FILA’s larger campaign also features big-name talent, including Ava Michelle from Netflix’s Tall Girl and World of Dance superstar Kaycee Rice.
