The new Shake It Up 1 < 3 Dance cd has arrived, and our three boys are surely shaking it up with their dance moves. The Shake It Up 1 < 3 Dance cd is loaded with music from Disney Channel’s hit series Shake It Up, and it features hit singles such as “This Is My Dance Floor” with Zendaya and Bella Thorne.

Shake It Up: 1 <3 Dance features songs by Bella and Zendaya as well as fellow Disney stars Selena Gomez, Bridgit Mendler, Roshon Fegan and Caroline Sunshine, in addition to up-and-coming stars Coco Jones, McClain Sisters and more.

My boys ages 3, 7 and 10 were quite thrilled, when they discovered a copy of Shake It Up: 1 <3 Dance waiting for them on the kitchen table, and they were certainly well aware of who the stars were. “Shake It Up” is the leading live-action TV series in its time period among Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, the show chronicles the adventures of best friends CeCe (Bella Thorne) and Rocky (Zendaya), whose dreams of becoming professional dancers are realized when they land roles as background dancers on the most popular teen dance show, “Shake It Up, Chicago!”

One of my personal favorites on the CD is the remix of “These Boots Are Made For Walkin“, which is performed by Olivia Holt on Shake It Up: 1 <3 Dance. “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” was a number one hit song with Nancy Sinatra in 1966, and it has successfully been turned into quite a dance hit with Olivia Holt.

There is a bit of a Spice Girls flavor to the Y.LA song I Can Do Better, and the bonus track We’re Dancing performed by Bridgit Mendler is a perfect fit with the rest of the dance songs on the Shake It Up 1 < 3 Dance album.

My 10-year-old son prefers the hit This Is My Dance Floor, while my two youngest sons were shaking it out to the mega dance songs such as “Afterparty” with Roshon Fegan and Caroline Sunshine as well as Future Sounds Like Us with Dove Cameron.

Of course the Shake It Up Theme Song performed by Selena Gomez is a hit with all three of the boys, and I was amazed that they could even tell me who sings it.
