Plot Synopsis

Best friends CeCe and Rocky are background dancers on the popular teen dance show, "Shake It Up, Chicago!" They must pop, lock and learn the challenging contemporary moves for each week's dance show, competing with the fancy footwork of their fellow dancers, including siblings Gunther and Tinka. Even though these BFFs revel in their newfound status as local celebs, they must quick step through the complex twists and turns of an average big city high school with their best friend Deuce and Rocky's brother Ty. At the same time, they still enjoy family life in the Windy City despite having to babysit CeCe's mischievous younger brother, Flynn. Season 3, which premiered on October 14, 2012, opened with Rocky and CeCe trying to keep their dance careers alive after the "Shake It Up Chicago" set is ruined.
On Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, Disney aired the series finale of SHAKE IT UP, with Rocky, Tinka and CeCe as the star models of a fashion show hosted by "Shake It Up Chicago." When a fashion mishap left CeCe with amnesia, a devastated Rocky tried everything she could to get her best friend to remember her and the special memories they shared. This special episode also included new music from series star Zendaya.
