11/11/20-The NBA Announced the season has been postponed. Stand by for info...

UPDATE at 11:23am on 3/12/20


From the evening news last night, we know that the NBA has postponed/stopped their basketball games for public safety--which sadly affects our event that were were going to have at the LA Clippers on Saturday.


I am so sorry that the timing has fallen like this. I stopped the shirt production last night so that we can hopefully pick this back up at another time and put a new message or date on the shirt.


I'm not sure how the Clippers are going to handle the tickets purchased. I am in the same situation as each of you. Once I find out, I'll share the information.


I have had such a meaingful experience dancing with you and in the sharing of our hearts and energy. Thank you for an AMAZING #ShakeIt experience in 2020. I don't think anyone could have predicted a pandemic two days before.


Please keep up your protection/health and our message, too. Community, joy, and self-acceptance matter.


I will look forward to reconnecting the the future to celebrate your originality and diversity once again. Thank you for your understanding and your graciousness about this unexpected disappointment that is in the greater good (but a bummer nonetheless!).


PS In the coming weeks, we'll share a video highlighting the fun we got to have together during rehearsals.


For Self-Acceptance, Community, & Joy!

To celebrate your originality and diversity!
