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.

    All of Travis Wall's routines have made me cry - he is just a genius! I also love the "Bleeding Love" routine danced by Chelsie and Mark!

    I have been watching SYTYCD since it first started. I have also seen all of the Step Up movies in which many of the dancers started out on SYTYCD! Twitch is one of my favorites, and this year, Ricky Ubeda is simply incredible. Dance is like art, it tells a story in a beautiful way, and that's why I love it so much. You should all check it out! :-)

    We love to watch So you think you can dance and dancing with the stars. My girls really enjoy watching it because My youngest wants to learn to dance. I think they could put a few more clothes on to make it more family appropriate for children to watch, otherwise, it is a great show.

    I am not much of a dancer, but I have a three year old who is all about ballerinas. We took her to a summer dance camp a few weeks back and she loved it so much! I am pretty sure she will be a dancer, even if just as a child.
