Welcome to

#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance!®

#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance!®

  • Sparks important conversations about body, soul, and self-acceptance
  • Brings people together to celebrate our diversity and originality
  • Educates through fun and inspiration
  • Is about community, joy, and dance!


Self-acceptance is so important for quality of life, mental health, relationships, just about every aspect of life. Conversations about it can help a person to check-in with their own level of self-acceptance, which can then create paths to either more of it or healing what's in the way of it. 


These webpages contain heartfelt speeches, joy-filled memories, and our signature (usually flash mob style!) dance. Auburn Road created the Anthem, "I'm Original," for this movement. Please enjoy, feel inspired, and get talking about self-acceptance.


In addition to our rallies and events, #ShakeIt has paired up with various causes that align with increasing self-acceptance and/or community. Please let us know if you have a cause coming up that a #ShakeIt flash mob dance might support.


This grassroots movement could not occur without each person who has participated, volunteered, sponsored, supported, and/or believed in this movement. You are appreciated.
