Many children need practice in balance, coordination and rhythm. Dance Party Zoo is a fun way to get it!

This fun dancing game helps children practice basic motor and balance skills. How do you play? Children begin by selecting a zoo animal for their dancing avatar. Then they can choose a dance tune from their iPhone or iPod’s music library or play a favorite song on a boom box. After the music starts, children hold or pocket their iPhone or iPod Touch and dance away!
