Shake it UP is a Disney Channel show that casts extras and guest stars to appear on the series.
This is actually the 3rd Disney channel show to follow the format of a show within a show. The others are ‘Sonny with a Chance’ and of course, ‘The Famous Jett Jackson’. Both those shows are about another show just like ‘Shake it Up’.
Shake It Up is about BFF’s CeCe Jones and Raquel “Rocky” Blue. The pair makes their dreams come true when they land on Shake it Up, a popular dance show that they really wanted to be on.
Now, the fame of being dancers on ‘Shake It Up’ puts their relationships to the test as they juggle their friendship and new found fame on a dance set.
The show just began airing its second season and we all hope they get renewed for a third so more people can get cast as extras, background actors and guest stars.
