“Shake It Up” is a song for shakers, but it is so much more than that. I wrote it at the beginning of Summer 2020 as a conversation starter, inspired by the many conversations being had around Black Lives Matter and other timely social justice issues. The lyrics are meant to question the status quo and spark motivation to make changes for the good of ALL people. I hope this song is helpful as you explore those topics with your students and clients when appropriate.
“Shake It Up” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
– Improve fine motor skills
– Increase understanding of social justice issues
– Increase feelings of group cohesion
You’re more than welcome to adapt the words of the songs as your conversations evolve, sharing concrete ways to “shake up” the status quo and make a meaningful difference in our world.
