Ellie loves to move her body to the beat of all kinds of music. The baby girl can't help but feel the rhythm as she twists, jumps and sways to her favorite tracks. Her father documents Ellie's dancing evolution on TikTok to her 67,000 followers. He dubbed her the "twerking toddler" himself. The dancing tot went viral with her very first video, inspired by none other than rapper Megan Thee Stallion. "Every time 'Body' by Megan Thee Stallion comes on, [she] throws everything off the table and takes the stage," the caption read. Ellie was minding her business until "Body" started playing. When the beat dropped, she tossed everything aside and jumped up and down. Then, she climbed on top of the coffee table as if it were her stage. "Toddlers are like little drunk adults. I love it," someone joked. "I too get on tables when this comes on," another said. Babies are actually born with a predisposition to dance. A study by the University of York's Department of Psychology found that infants between five months and two years old are essentially programmed to move to music. "We also found that the better the children were able to synchronize their movements with the music, the more they smiled,” Dr. Marcel Zentner, who conducted the study, told Science Daily
