The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media and digital. View this season's finalists!

From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards Dance

No more need to go to the dance studio—now the best choreographers and dancers can come directly into your home. These ballerinas, b-boys, and booty bouncers take to YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and more to show off their moves—shaking, shimmying, and sharing all of it with fans across the globe.

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