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"

 

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

    I took tap dancing lessons as a young girl. It was quite fun. I wish I had stayed with the lessons!

    I adore this show and as a trained dancer I love that it's educating so many people about the different dance styles. I have adored many of the numbers but some standouts for me are Melanie and Marcos's "Chorus Line-esk duet" (I forget the name) Twitch and Alex's "Outta Your Mind" and I'm blanking on the others...

    My very best dance experience was when my husband took ballroom dancing, in secret . And surprised me with charm and grace at our first dance at our wedding - 28 years ago !! And still a 'charmer" ......

    I haven't watched the show, but I love to dance. I, of course, don't dance anywhere close to a professional, but I used to go dancing all the time and it was so much fun. It is also great exercise and helps so much with core stability in someone like me who is such a klutz.
