Earlier this year, the Disney channel partnered with Akai Osei to launch the Shake It Up: Dance, Dance competition. The initiative invited fans of Shake It Up who were aged 6 to 16 to upload a video clip of themselves recreating some of the signature dance moves from the show.
Shake It Up: Dance, Dance ambassador, Akai Osei added: “I think Chantel’s entry is fantastic. Her performance shows a real passion for dance and is clearly having a lot of fun, which is what Shake It Up is all about and something close to my heart.”
The initiative has become Disney Channel’s most popular video contest ever.
