Being a former Special Education teacher, I can tell you they do feel the vibrations of the music and especially love the bass (boom-boom) loudest of them all.

thanks for the info. does that mean, then, that if the music is law without boom-boom sounds, they wouldn't be able to dance at all?

NO, they "feel" al vibrations, however I noticed they go wild over the loud booming bass just like hearing kids so today. Thanks for best response.

ofcourse they can, they use their feelings to feel the vibaration of the music. the more boom they feel the more they can understand music and dance.

I think they are born with the music within them.:-) They dance to the tunes of good! Well that was hypothetically speaking. Since they can see,they must have seen other people dance and followed suit and yes not to forget the vibrations of the floor too.

Maybe they can't hear it with their ears but if the music is up loud enough, they could feel the vibrations on the floor. Plus, I know that if I see a group of people having fun, it's contagious and I want to join right in. :)

I am sure what you experienced at the party was children feeling the vibrations of the music from the speakers. It's quite amazing what deaf children pick up on and learn to enjoy.

Yes, the vibrations. Also, some people (who aren't deaf) doesn't dance to the beat. They dance with their own beat. I, too, am amazed with those kind of children who doesn't limit themselves to their handicaps. They just live life to the fullest.

Did you ever see the movie, "Children of a Lesser God?" In it William Hurt, a teacher, teaches his class how to dance and sing to music. They performed it for a parent's show. It's one of my favorite scenes from the movie.

They can feel the vibrations. The rest might be imitation. My mother is deaf. When I took piano lessons, she sat by the piano while I practiced, with her hand on top the of piano. She could always tell when I made a mistake. Sometimes, when she thought we weren't around, she'd turn up the music in the house really loud and dance. She was a good dancer. She used to watch our dance lessons and practice what we learned at home.

Because they can't hear, I think they listen from their hearts. ;)
