#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,
  • and is about community, joy, and dance!


#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance! is a grassroots movement and could not occur without each person who has participated, volunteered, sponsored, supported, and/or believed in this movement. This includes, you--the person viewing this page right now! Please enjoy the heartfelt speeches, joy-filled memories, and our signature dance to the anthem, which is our message, "I'm Original" (created for this movement by Auburn Road).
