Well, spring may not be here just yet, but it's not too soon to get those cobwebs out of your system and "shake it up" a bit.

To help you along here is a fun video clip produced by the young folks from the town of Lubiniec, Poland.

When you watch the video, get up out of your chair, turn the sound up, do as instructed and ... "Shake It Up!".

And you'll be all ready for a fun Spring!

Enjoy!
