There was a whole lotta dancin' in the streets this past Saturday as hoofers, poppers, tappers, ballerinas and beat boys of every stripe gathered to celebrate the art of dance throughout America for #NationalDanceDay.

This year the Dizzy Feet Foundation posted three instructional Everybody Dance routines on YouTube (an Advanced, a Beginner, and a Seated) to learn - and then partied it out with the crowd at events in cities coast to coast. The hashtag trended at #1 on Twitter throughout the day.

The goal of this National Holiday, passed by Congress in 2010, is to promote dance as part of a healthy active lifestyle.The Dizzy Feet Foundation was created by Nigel Lythgoe, reality TV producer and performing-arts advocate, to sponsor and support dance education programs.

Are you a fan of Nigel's other creation, the show So You Think You Can Dance? If so, do you have a favorite routine that has left you crying, screaming, or cheering from either a choreography that drew you in, or a personal story that reached you?

If so, tell us about any dance experience in the comments below - and you'll automatically be entered to win a pair of 14kt gold classic hoop earrings!

To get in the mood, here are a few of the show's award-winning works that cover the gamut from Bollywood, Hip Hop, Jazz, Modern Dance, Latin, Swing, Tango, Jive and then some  - as they speak to our humanity.

 

 OUTTA MY HEAD - Alex and Twitch
 
 TIME - Neil and Lacey
 
 MI CONFESSION - Mark and Chelsie
 
 MERCY - Twitch and Katee
 
 FIX YOU - Robert and Allison
 

"Our job, especially in the digital world, is not just to entertain but to inform. - Nigel Lythgoe"

 

 *This giveaway is open through Aug 11th to USA residents at least 18 years of age. No purchase necessary.

 Congratulations to our Winner!: Shaktimom

    I watch the show, I'm not a dancer, I flip back and forth, and watch the unbelievable routines , these kids are so dedicated and give all their time to this craft. Something I never had a chance to do, or I also think I wouldn't have as much dedication as them. Cheers to them!

    I do love this show when I watch it. I think Robert and Allison's Fix You was beautiful.
