Dance your way to meeting Derek Hough with the Bacon Dance TikTok Challenge.

Choreographed exclusively for Red Robin, Derek created the Bacon Dance TikTok Challenge as a tribute to the beloved salty snack.

“Red Robin’s new Bacon Bash menu items are so good, you can’t help but dance,” said Derek Hough. “So, Red Robin and I have come together to create the newest TikTok dance challenge calling on all Red Robin fans, bacon-lovers, and dance enthusiasts to show off their moves for a chance to join me for a virtual ‘meet and eat’ over Red Robin’s new menu items.” 

If you want to get in on the challenge, you might just end up being one of three participants to join in that "meet and eat." So, how do you do the dance?

You're going to want to slide your left foot back while you alternate pressing your arms down at your sides before you cross your arms over your chest. Then snap your arms down, followed by alternating your arms out at each side while making a finger-gunning motion.

Then pull your left knee up, push it back down and out, and rotate your arms around each other. Step and slide right with the opposite arm raised, followed by the same on the left, and jump out and in. Cross your arms over each other and then point down on the left. Bring the left hand up to your face as you lift your left leg and push yourself around, so your back is to the camera.

Shake to the right, then the left, and then turn back to the camera, partially bent and with your arms behind your back. With your legs spread wide, slide right and then left. Stand straight and hold your arms up so that the palms are facing the camera. Then move your head and arms left and right a couple of times before closing your palms together. Then step out to the right and shake your hips as you move your hands to the left of your head, followed by the right. 

Then jump out, wiggle those hips, and drop your hands out and down. Repeat that last motion, before turning to the left, drumming your arms out and down. Toss your arms out while you jump your left leg in front of the right, turn, and finish by using your right leg to slide you toward the camera.

What's on the menu for the "meet and eat"?

If you perform the Bacon Dance TikTok Challenge with the proper style and flair, you just might win a chance to dine with Derek on the new Bacon Bash menu. You'll be able to try the Bacon Jammin’ Burger, which comes with savory-sweet bacon jam, hardwood-smoked bacon, bacon aioli, cheddar, red onions, lettuce, and tomatoes on a sesame bun.

For a side, you can also get the Bacon Jammin’ Wings, which come as either bone-in or boneless wings, topped with the same bacon jam, bacon crumbles, cherry peppers, and BBQ brown sugar glaze, all on a bed of Yukon kettle chips. 

Of course, you didn't think Red Robin would forget about dessert. You'll also be able to sip on the Caramel & Cookie Crumble Milkshake, which is soft serve blended with milk, oatmeal cookie crumbs, and caramel, topped with whipped cream, cookie crumbs, and candied bacon for dipping. 

Sounds like the Bacon Dance TikTok Challenge is truly the tastiest challenge out there!
