3rd Annual 

at LA Sparks Halftime on Thursday, July 13th!

#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance is a grassroots movement that sparks self-acceptance through inspiration, (usually) a flash mob dance, and fun! 


For our third annual event, we're dancing during the LA Sparks halftime show at the Staples Center!


#ShakeIt inspires people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to experience and empower their original selves.


This movement is about change that moves towards greater self-acceptance. So shake things up and out, and join us! 


Whether you are dancing or in the stands supporting, we unite. 


Join us, and #ShakeIt for body-, soul-, & self-acceptance!
