"Get On Your Feet" is a single by Gloria Estefan. It was released in 1989 in the U.S., Japan, and the UK, and in 1990 in Europe as the second single from the album Cuts Both Ways.

Estefan's 1990 tour was named after the track. The track has been featured in several subsequent tours, and was included as the final song in the "Miami Hitmix" medley, released as a single and performed in the VH1 special VH1 Divas. In performances, Estefan characteristically jumps into the air when singing the title line.

In the popular viral video "Steve Ballmer Going Crazy", Steve Ballmer danced and screamed wildly to this song at a Microsoft employee convention.

The song was covered by Fantasia Barrino on the third season of American Idol, during a Gloria Estefan-themed episode.

Gloria performed this song with Sheila E. during the seventh season edition of the American Idol charity fundraiser Idol Gives Back. The performance was released as a single and as a video at the US iTunes Store to raise money for charities in Africa and the United States.

The song was included in several episodes in the fourth season of the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation.
