My girls are huge Disney Fans, especially eldest who has recently made the move from cartoon Disney to the more real life action filled kids programmes. Eldest loves the show "Shake It Up" - a show about two high school students and best friends, "Rocky Blue, and CeCe Jones". CeCe (played by Bella Thorne) and Rocky Blue (played by Zendaya) have always wanted to be professional dancers. They finally get their big break when they land jobs as backing dancers on a local TV dance show “Shake It Up, Chicago”. Now, into it's third season, Shake It Up sees Rocky and CeCe re-auditioning for their spots on the show and trying to balance their dance lives with their school and social lives.
To co-incide with the third season, Disney have recently released the series' third soundtrack - Shake It Up: I Love Dance. The new soundtrack is packed with lots of fresh, upbeat, music which kids will love, including hit tracks from Zendaya, Bella Thorne, Bridgit Mendler, Coco Jones, plus a special REMIX of the theme song performed by Selena Gomez (which eldest especially loves).
Eldest was really impressed by the pink sparkly cover. Her favourite songs as well as the Shake It Up theme song, are "Beat of My Drum" and "We're Dancing". As parents, we like this soundtrack because it features fantastic pop music, but without the suggestive unsavoury lyrics of some pop songs - so we don't mind eldest listening to it. Eldest says "You need to buy this new release because there is lots of great music which all kids will love" - an honest review from a real life Disney obsessed kid!
Disney's Shake It Up: I Love Dance is available from Amazon priced around £11. Here is a preview of one of the tracks on the soundtrack "Contagious Love".
