#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance!®

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


Self-acceptance affects our quality of life, mental health, relationships, and just about every aspect of life. Conversations about it can help a person to check in with their level of self-acceptance--which can then create paths to either more self-compassion or healing what's in the way of more inner contentment. 


These webpages contain heartfelt speeches, joy-filled memories, inspiring messages, and the signature (usually flash mob style!) dance to our anthem, "I'm Original," by Auburn Road. 


In addition to our #ShakeIt rallies and events, #ShakeIt has had the honor of complimenting various meaningful events and the accompanying messages. Let us know if you have a cause coming up that a #ShakeIt flash mob might support!


This grassroots movement could not occur without each person who has participated, given their time and energy, sponsored, supported, and believed in this movement. Each person is appreciated.


We hope that you enjoy the following pages, feel inspired, and get talking about self-acceptance.
