I'm shooting a spec commercial on Red One MX and would like to emulate the soft beauty lighting in this video. 

 

 

We are shooting in a large dance studio with a skylight and several windows so there's a lot of daylight to work with.  I appreciate any pointers/suggestions!

Just looks like a lot of big bounces, and lifted blacks in the camera.

Maybe also a softFX 1 filter in camera in combination with a promist one
There are a lot of methods mixing promists, softFX or low contrast LC.
Bounce with big whites and diffuse the daylight

Soft lighting - just hang a shower curtain up at the window on a cloudy day and shoot - add a little more bounce fill if necessary. If you need to shoot on a lower ASA then you'll need fire resistant material and then bounce light of it or through it. Bounce is slightly softer than diffused lighting. But what you need to focus on is the fill light ratios - which here I would say are 5:4 key:fill.
