What’s better than mixing tropical family travel with TikTok? These days, people of all ages are on TikTok, whether making their own videos or just using it to watch funny content. Keep up with the latest dance craze or follow and interact with your favorite influencers and celebrities.
The Aruba Marriott Resort recently launched its new TikTok Time feature for the ultimate influencer and dance experience. Once a week, on the resort’s pristine shores, a professional dance instructor will host a complimentary TikTok dance session to show guests how to do the latest TikTok dance trend with step-by-step instructions. Depending on the current trend, the dances learned can be anywhere from 15 seconds to one minute. Once everyone in the group has the dance down, the instructor will film everyone so the participants can upload their moves to TikTok.
The TikTok experience is open to travelers and guests of all ages. Parents will also be able to make an appearance on their children’s TikTok or maybe even make their own! This experience is laid-back and fun, giving the family a chance to come together for a trendy moment. Fingers crossed the video will go viral!
If the parents aren’t into this experience, there are plenty of other activities at the resort for them to participate in. For more information on the resort and TikTok experience, click here.
