casting for disney channel 2012 – Shake it Up season 3 may be coming soon in 2012 and maybe you too will have a shot to audition for ‘Shake It Up’.
Shake It Up premiered on November 7, 2010 and the Disney Channel show was created by Chris Thompson. Shake It Up stars Bella Thorne as CeCe Jones and Zendaya as Rocky Blue.
When the show was cast over 200 girls auditioned for the parts of CeCe and Rocky – Bella Thorne and Zendaya were the lucky and talented girls who got the part. Bella Thorne had never been a dancer and began taking dance classes and Zendaya had a background in theater. Casting directors for Disney later commented that the 2 girls were chosen because they had great energy.
The two friends become background dancers on a show called Shake It Up that is in Chicago. The series is their adventures both on and off the Shake It Up set as they try to keep their social lives, school lives and new found stardom all in balance.
The 2 girls are best friends and end up in many comedic situations. The show within a show format is one that Disney Channel used before with shows like Sonny with a Chance and The Famous Jett Jackson. The show within a show format creates a TV series that is about another series or people who act in another series. Shake It Up takes a dance twist because the two girls are dancers. The show is kinda like Hannah Montana, except with dance instead of singing.
Shake It Up also stars Davis Cleveland, Roshon Fegan, Adam Irigoyen, Kenton Duty and Caroline Sunshine.
