Zendaya Coleman stars in "Shake It Up!" on Disney Channel as Raquel "Rocky" Blue, one half of the comedic duo of young dancers trying to dance her way to stardom. She is currently recording her debut album on Hollywood Records.

Zendaya is also one of the celebrity contestants competing in Season 16 of ABC's ballroom competition series, "Dancing with the Stars." She partners with professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy, who returns for his fourth season.

Born September 1, 1996, in Oakland, California, Zendaya Coleman grew up as part of the nearby California Shakespeare Theater in Orinda, where her mother works as the House Manager. In addition to training at the theater's student conservatory program, and later performing in numerous stage productions, Zendaya helped her mom seat patrons and sell raffle tickets to benefit the theater.

While attending the Oakland School for the Arts, she starred as a young Ti Moune in "Once on This Island" at the Berkley Playhouse and the breakout role of the male character Joe in "Caroline, or Change" at Palo Alto's TheaterWorks. She also studied her craft at the CalShakes Conservatory program and at the American Conservatory Theater. Her other stage credits include "Richard III," "Twelfth Night," "As You Like It," among others.

Zendaya, which means "to give thanks" in Shona (a Bantu language native to the Shona people of Zimbabwe), was a fashion model for Macy's, Mervyns and Old Navy. She was also one of the back-up dancers in a Sears commercial featuring Disney Channel star Selena Gomez.

Zendaya now resides in Los Angeles, California with her family and dog, a Giant Schnauzer named Midnight. Her interests include singing, dancing and clothes designing.
