When we see a baby, we automatically think it is the cutest thing and is super adorable. But when a baby smiles, giggles, talks to themself, or even dances, we think it is the most adorable thing. On long car rides, short car rides, when at home, or when at the grandparents house, a baby seeks amusement and attention from others. What a better way to reach this goal than to dance to some music.
Babies like to dance to music, especially if it is their favorite. According to Live Science, “Babies love a beat, according to a new study that found dancing comes naturally to infants. The research showed babies respond to the rhythm and tempo of music, and find it more engaging than speech. The findings, based on a study of 120 infants between 5 months and 2 years old, suggest that humans may be born with a predisposition to move rhythmically in response to music.”
In other words, babies have the natural reaction to move their bodies, also known as dance, to different beats to music. They love music and have no problem dancing to it. Babies have no fear of judgment from other people, which helps them in their reactions to dance. They are so happy and smiley when they dance and they just want to have fun.
Well, this little baby girl, named Ella Dooley, was in the mood to dance and was wanting to have fun. She heard her favorite song, “Old Town Road,” and started to move. As soon as she heard the first word of the song, she looked over to the speaker and had a smile on her face. She started moving her arms and doing the wiggle to the beat of the song. Her mother started to record and also started to laugh. Whenever the mother would goggle, so would Ella. It is an absolutely adorable video and reaction to some music. I sure wish I could dance as well as this little baby.
