From the 12th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Dance

Thanks to social media, some of the best dancers performing on the biggest stages are brought right to our phones and screens. From world famous studios to local parking lots, dance is still alive, well and thriving in its purest form thanks to these movers and groovers sharing their craft with fans across the globe. Whether they were showing off their own moves, spotlighting others, or choreographing pieces, these nominees created the year’s best content.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of social media in this space, enter the Best in Entertainment Shorty Award.
