Bella’s Unique Qualities
One of the reasons the Disney Channel is so popular is that it features shows with relatable storylines, and CeCe Jones from ‘Shake It Up’ is no exception. Bella could play the ambitious, dyslexic dance prodigy on reel extremely accurately, having been diagnosed with dyslexia herself in first grade. Bella Thorne was bullied in school, which led to her being home-schooled for a period of time.
