Babies are cute and toddlers are even sweeter when they start standing on their feet, running, and dancing.

But dancing’s the cutest.

They’ll dance to anything

Every parent has dozens- if not hundreds- of videos saved on their mobiles of their children dancing and making funny moves when they listen to songs.

It doesn’t really have to be a kids’ song or anything special. Toddlers can dance to everything; even to the sound of you talking on the phone.

But when there’s a really amazing performance of a popular song, then they definitely can’t resist. They will immediately start dancing and steal the show wherever they are.

This is what happened a few months ago in Los Angeles, California, when a little girl found herself among two street musicians who played a cover of the popular song “Dance Monkey”, by Tones and I.

And this toddler loved it.

The young violinist announces they are going to perform the song, then a saxophonist comes, and the duo starts playing their instruments with such passion and dedication that nobody can remain untouched.

Even those listening to them from home through the video want to dance, imagine people who happened to pass by at that moment.

Unforgettably adorable

But one of those who were really excited about the song was a one-year-old girl, who just couldn’t stop dancing throughout the song.

When the song started, the little girl spread her arms and started moving her waist, making it clear that this was one of her favorite songs.

She rocked it!

She was just feeling the music.

And her passion and rhythm were contagious- we have spotted a couple of the people who started moving.

Yet, most of those watching the performance were too busy capturing the whole thing on camera.

The little girl didn’t even pause for a second. She kept dancing and dancing as if she was the attraction there instead of the musicians.

The toddler even caught the young violinist’s attention, who mentioned her in the description of the video.

“It’s unbelievable. 1-year-old baby joins my street performance of “Dance Monkey” (original by Tones and I) with Daniele Vitale on sax. “

When the song ended, the toddler lost her balance, and the young violinist rushed to help her, but she got on her feet on her own.

She’s such a strong little creature.

The street musicians were Karolina Protsenko, a 14-year-old Ukrainian-born American violinist, and Daniele Vitale, an Italian saxophone player and YouTuber.

The violinist has become famous thanks to her YouTube channel which has more than 6.5 million subscribers.

She was born in Ukraine.

She moved to the US with her parents when she was a schoolgirl.

Karolina is a violin genius.

She can learn a song within about an hour- and her parents have been supporting her all these years that she has been studying music.

Her favorite spot for playing her cover songs is Santa Monica 3rd Street promenade, and she has already released three albums.

See this toddler get down to their flawless performance in the video below!
