If you are the type of person who loves to embarrass your family in public with your vintage dance moves, you’ll want to read about this viral challenge.

Bret Michaels, the lead singer for Poison, is offering his followers the chance to earn $10,000 for their favorite charity, plus a pair of VIP tickets to a special "rock star trip."

In a video promoting the contest, Michaels shows off his own "Hot Rocks" dance moves and encouraged fans to "let your freak feet fly" as he laid out the rules for the contest:

  1. Film yourself (and your family or friends, if they’ll embarrass themselves)  dancing like you’re standing on Hot Rocks.
  2. Upload your video to your Instagram.
  3. Tag your video with all four of these hashtages: #HotRocksChallenge #Unbroken #bretmichaels #contest
  4. Follow Bret on Instagram at @bretmichaelsofficial

Michaels showed off his own Hot Rocks moves on camera, and judging by his skills the barrier to entry in this contest is pretty low.

There are already a few entries in the challenge so far, which is your favorite?

It probably wouldn’t hurt your chances if the song you cut a rug to was "Unbroken," the new track from Bret Michaels and his daughter Jorja that the contest is promoting. There’s a clip of the song on the official contest rules page (link below).

The contest’s winner will be announced on March 15th, so you have just over a month to hot step your way to $10,000 for a good cause (and a pair of concert tickets for you and a friend).

And all the videos of people dancing that we’re about to see on social media are for another good cause: they’re also raising awareness for Michaels’ Life Rocks charities, which support everything from childhood cancer research to military veterans, diabetes charities, and much more.
