Though not part of the cast, Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place (2007) sang the Show's Theme Song. In Season 3 it was cut to only less than 30 seconds, shortening the intro and removing Kenton Duty (Gunther) due to him leaving the cast, reducing the amount of Main Cast Members from 7 to 6.

Shake it up you mean shake it down
2 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What in the hell is this?! The first episode was a slap in my face, I just knew this wasn't going to continue well. First off we have a stupid red head who probably knows nothing but Dance an that's the worst part....she CAN'T dance!! Then we have this know it all smartas* who can't dance either and thinks she's best at everything, which she's clearly not. Then we have lame as* Tinka who looks like my uncle gold tooth every episode. This show is by far the worst Disney could think of! Who ever thought this show was a good idea, probably never had a childhood experience with Disney and their entertaining shows in the past. The only time I smiled and enjoyed the show was when the credits were on the screen going to good luck Charlie. I feel bad for Selena Golmez she had to sit there and record there shi*y theme song.
