‘It’s the Yacht for Me ’: Ciara’s Does the ‘Up’ Dance Challenge in the Middle of the Ocean

Anyone with a social media account and a smartphone can participate in a dance challenge, but it’s the delivery that’ll make your clip stand out from the rest. 

Recently singer and dance extraordinaire Ciara uploaded a clip of herself tackling the latest dance trend to Cardi B’s single “Up.” And from the looks of the video, the star had only one thing in mind: location, location, location. 

Captured by presumably a flying drone, Ciara put her own spin on the not-so-easy choreography created by celebrity choreographer Sean Bankhead. Dressed in a black beach dress, the “1, 2, Step” singer twerked, squatted and jumped around while onboard a massive luxury yacht. She captioned the post, “It’s Up 🌊 @iamcardib.”

Ciara’s fierce skills garnered over 2 million views from fans blown away by not only her moves but the production of it all. One Instagram user wrote, “It’s the whole scenery for me 😩🙌🏽.” Another fan chimed in, “It’s the yacht for me 😩🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾✨✨✨.”

Celebrity stylist Kelly Augustine said, “It’s the high production value on a yacht for me…” She added, “This video just called me broke 😢.” “Revising my prayers… *lawd I’d like a Russell type of man and Ciara’s knees… Amen 🙌😂,” another expressed. “When you have so much money you get on a f-cking yacht and do the up challenge. Makes sense to me 🤷🏾‍♀️😍😍😍.”

However, Ciara isn’t the only talented one in her family. The mommy of three routinely shares photos and clips of her two oldest children, Future and Sienna, following in their mom’s dancing footsteps. She recently shared a clip of her and Sienna taking on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body” dance challenge, proving that the dancing gene definitely runs in the family.

During an interview with ET Canada, she opened up about motherhood during the pandemic and what she’s been doing to keep her kids busy during the lockdown. “That break in the day when you send your kids to school is a luxury. We’re trying all kinds of stuff to keep them both occupied,” she told the outlet. “The other day I got in the car with Sienna and drove her past some horses for a change of scenery.”
