If it disappeared in a literal, animated "poof" then all you have done is remove the convenience shortcut.

In the Finder, Go -> Applications and you will find your programs. To restore the folder to the sidebar and Dock, choose Go -> Enclosing Folder. You will then see "Applications". THis is the real folder, drag it to the dock / sidebar. This doesn't move the real folder, just creates a reference to it.
