Boogie Beebies aims to get children off their seats and boogying along to pop songs especially created for them. In each programme, the viewer is introduced to a song created around a fun, child-friendly location. The song explores aspects of that location, using it as the basis for a series of moves that will make up a dance-routine.
In our research we have found a huge amount of interest among both boys and girls in learning pop routines and have been impressed with children's ability to pick up quite complicated moves. This seems to be a fairly new phenomenon amongst pre-schoolers as they strive to be like their older siblings and friends. Although in reality it is a short move on from action rhymes, there does seem to be a new keenness to learn routines.
By providing our young viewers with specially-commissioned songs and dance routines suitable for their developmental needs, we hope to tap into this enthusiasm, encourage an interest in dance, healthy movement and singing - and also explore some interesting and inspirational locations with them.
