50Shake It Up doesn't shake up the kid-com formula one bit, but it's something more than the usual shiny-sparkly cuteness. [20 Dec 2010, p.44]
I have watched pretty much every Disney pilot in the last 5 years and didn't miss the premier of Shake It Up November 7th... and I wasn't disappointed. Bella Thorne and Zendaya are adorable as CeCe and Rocky... They're stylish, hip and amazing dancers to top it off... Thr production value is very high (especially for a Disney series). The sets of CeCe's Chicago apartment as well as the stage of Dance Dance Chicago! are perfect down to the smallest details. It looks like Disney went all out on this one.
The music wasn't really my thing, but then again I'm not so into dance music. But I loved the choreography and am excited to see the dance crews that are scheduled to appear throughout the season. I also enjoyed the supporting cast... Davis Cleveland (as CeCe's little brother Flynn) is adorable but also has hilarious edge to his character. Roshon and Adam (as Rocky's brother and Duece) were very funny as well.
All in all, I am very excited to continue watching Shake It Up and can't wait to see more episodes!… Expand
5This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have watched many Disney Channel shows, including Shake It Up. I watched the premiere today on November 7th, and in my opinion it is the worst show on Disney I've ever seen. The two main characters, Rocky and CC, are cute little actors, but horrible dancers. In one of the scenes, Rocky's brother says that she isn't good enough to be on the show, so they do a little dance off. Rocky's brother does a cool little dance, while Rocky repeats it. She does everything he does, except way worse. Another scene when they're auditioning, one of the guys totally dances it out unbelievably. He some how doesn't get in. Then Rocky does a dance. All she does it slide her feet across the dance floor while she shakes her body, then she gets in. It doesn't make sense. Normally I wouldn't make a big deal about it, but the whole show is about this. None of the characters are that funny and it doesn't seem like a show that would get intense and dramatic. Shake It Up is very disappointing. I also didn't find anything good about the show.… Expand
