Following its premiere in November 2010, the series ranked as the No. 1 series among tweens 9-14 in 2011, and for second quarter 2012-to-date, it’s the No. 1 TV series among kids 2-11 (2.0 million/4.9 rating) and kids 6-11 (1.6 million/6.7 rating).

In addition, Shake It Up inspired the Disney Channel’s first-ever talent competition for kids and tweens, Make Your Mark: Ultimate Dance Off – Shake It Up Edition, as well as a successful soundtrack and merchandizing line.

Coming this summer is Shake It Up: Made In Japan, a 90-minute special in which the gang will head to Tokyo after Rocky and CeCe win a chance to star in a dance video game. A sneak peek of the special will air during the Disney Channel original movie Let It Shine on June 15.
