Watch this 6-year-old dominate Zumba and promote a good cause while she's at it.

Audrey Nethery knows how to cut a rug.

So you think you can dance? Check out Audrey Nethery, and then get back to me.

The 6-year-old opened the International Zumba Conference in August 2015 in Orlando, Florida, and — judging from the footage below — she dominated.

Her opening act has gone viral. As of Aug. 26, 2015, the video below has garnered more than 4.5 million views. It all started when the team at Zumba spotted Audrey's talent by way of her public Facebook page. She was invited to the conference, and the rest is, well, viral history.

Zumba "means happiness and fun to Audrey," her dad, Scott, told Yahoo. Audrey apparently does the popular Latin American-styled aerobics program every Saturday. Scott and Audrey's mom love to see her getting good exercise, and they say it boosts her self-confidence, too.

Her small stature is the last thing on her mind when she's movin' and groovin' on the dance floor. That's because Audrey isn't just dancing for fun. She's dancing to raise awareness. Audrey has Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA), a bone marrow disease that limits her growth. It's relatively rare, with only about 25 to 35 new cases of DBA diagnosed in the U.S. and Canada each year. Those living with the condition have bone marrow that fails to produce adequate amounts of red blood cells. The condition can cause heart murmurs and kidney defects, but with the right treatment, DBA patients can live long and healthy lives.

Audrey is doing incredible work — on and off the dance floor. Her Facebook page, dedicated to raising awareness about DBA and encouraging folks to donate to help find a cure, has nearly 400,000 likes.

Keep cuttin' up those rugs, Audrey — you're doing an incredible job of dancing your way to a better world.

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.

Many of us are too young to remember the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 of 1986, much less any details about it. But thanks to a viral Facebook post from Misfit History, some attention is being shed on an incredible heroine who saved many American lives in the standoff.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
