TikTok has come up with another challenge that is entertaining the audience worldwide. The platform is known for introducing new and exciting trends, many of which have been dance-based. Whether it was the Wiggle Wiggle challenge or the Laxed (Siren Beat) trend, users around the globe have danced their hearts out to the viral tracks.
Now, another dance-based trend, the Bacardi Dance Challenge, has taken social media by storm and is being performed by thousands of users. So what exactly is the challenge, and how can you perform it? Read on to find out.
What is the Bacardi Dance Challenge on TikTok?
The Bacardi Dance Challenge has garnered a huge number of views and videos in the last few days. As a part of the challenge, a person has to show off their moves while dancing to Amapiano, a music genre from South Africa.
The music, which is said to be originated in the mid-2010s, features catchy and consistent beats, which surely make you want to shake a leg. However, the challenge does not include just any random move but very specific hip movements.
It is not yet clear how did the challenge originate and how it was named. It has grown in popularity since the beginning of 2023 and has received millions of impressions. As for Amapiano, it has been around for some time now. In 2022, a group of 250 dances in South Africa created a Guinness World Record for the largest amapiano dance.
How to Perform the Bacardi Dance Challenge?
To perform the challenge, you need to create a dance video to the tune of Amapiano with your back facing the camera. The dance moves involved seem to be a mix of belly dancing and twerking. So the dancer has to keep their upper body stable and draw all the attention to their hips and butt.
Once you are satisfied with your moves, you can upload the video on TikTok. There are no winners or losers in the Bacardi Dance Challenge, but people who are able to pull off the moves gracefully without sweating are being lauded on TikTok.

The trend has now especially gone viral in Africa and is being performed by thousands of TikTok users. Out of the videos going viral, one shows a lady with the username @okeditse.ee showcasing her perfect moves. The video is now being touted as one of the best to have come out of the challenge.
