Enter the SheSpeaks Celebrate Dance Giveaway

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"

    I don't watch the show, but I have seen previews of it. My favorite dance is my 4 year old granddaughter doing her routine to the Frozen song "Let It Go", it is so adorable.

    My absolute most funnest time I have ever had dancing was at a wedding of a neighbor's. It was a second marriage for both, and a fun casual affair at a restaurant that had a small dance floor. The DJ was very cool, and at one point after everyone was warmed up, he announced, "We are going to have some special music right now. We know a lot of you guys really don't like dancing too much, but you ladies do. So this will be a ladies only time!" Well, the dance floor got full of us really quick, and we had a ball! We could do whatever we wanted, without our grimacing hubbies there. We danced and danced, and then when it was over, he handed us each CD's to take home of "Dance Like No One's Watching", which is full of all kinds of fun, chick-dancing. Never had so much fun at a wedding in my life!

    Dancing was my outlet as a painfully shy teen. I was in every talent show my schools had. I participated in every dance event that I could find because it allowed me a way to find common ground or break the ice amongst my peers.

    Robert and Allison to Coldplay's Fix You really tells a story. I like many of the dances on this show.

    I'm a fan! I recently found out that the lady in charge of the hair department is from my hometown. She does a great job because everybody on this show always looks so glamourous!
