BoomKLAKers shows kids how to FEEL the BEAT by associating musical beats with movement. This is one of the basic principles for understanding music and dance. Babies are born with this skill innately. If they learn to feel the beat, they can dance forever. It is a skill that stays with them their entire lives.

- Kids are interested in hearing strong beats
- They want to see ACTION/REACTION
- Taps create the sequences for dancing monsters
- The monsters move to the beat of the music
- Created by a choreographer/dancer Rosa Mei
- Featuring the coolest soundtracks by Teddy Guilbaud
- Inspired by poppers, martial artists and cirque acrobats.
- The first app that shows how to SEE and FEEL dance!

Rhythm

Babies love a beat, according to a new study that finds dancing comes naturally to infants.

Music

The research showed babies respond to the rhythm and tempo of music, and find it more engaging than speech..

Movement

Research shows that babies move in time to music even before they learn to speak.

Tiny Dancers Show Rhythm's Roots
  • 19 March 2010
In perhaps the cutest study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, psychologist Marcel Zentner and Tuomas Eerola found that babies will spontaneously boogie when they hear music and other rhythmic sounds. The findings suggest babies are not great dancers, but they smile more when they do hit the beat.

Why Toddlers Love to Dance
  • 12 August 2010
When children are aged 12-24 months, they are able to stand, walk and begin to have a good body balance to move. “At that age children will naturally align between the sounds and rhythms they hear. This is because children had already paid attention to the rhythm of speech and voice of heartbeat since they were still inside the womb,” says Professor Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, PhD , a psychologist at Temple University, Philadelphia.
