wsmremsen stoq zewmo ut areo ako cceom[vf CeCe is a fashionable, adventurous, upbeat, brutally honest, bright, yet somewhat ditzy girl, and is described as "a daring wild child who is uncontrollable, funky, and fun" on the school blog ("Wild It Up"). She's street-smart rather than book-smart, unlike her best friend, Rocky. Initially, she performs poorly in school partially because of dyslexia, but also because of her behavior as a trouble-maker. However, she gradually improves academically as the series progresses. CeCe is fearless and outgoing and is constantly getting into trouble. Despite her initially failing her audition due to stage fright, she eventually earned a spot as a background dancer on Shake It Up, Chicago.
