Here at SFG, we've come to the conclusion that babies love to dance. It seems like we're always coming across videos in which babies and toddlers are feeling the beat and busting out their best dance moves. A recent study conducted at the University of York revealed that babies find music to be more engaging than speech. According to their findings, children between five months and two years of age are predisposed to move rhythmically with the music to which they're exposed. Dr. Zentner, one of the key researchers for the study, also discussed this finding: "The better the children were able to synchronize their movements with the music, the more they smiled."
We knew babies liked to dance, so we weren't completely taken aback by the research. Nevertheless, it was still fascinating to read and learn about their natural inclinations. The video below is right in line with those findings. Watch as this uncle hands his nephew a phone with music playing. His nephew doesn't miss a beat - too cute!
