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. It affects 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. This can then create paths to either more or healing what's in the way of it. 


These webpages contain heartfelt speeches, joy-filled memories, inspiring messages, 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.
