Washington: A four-year-old Chinese boy, who has been making waves across the world with his dance moves, has been hailed as the `spirit of Michael Jackson`.

Wang Yiming, who is known as Xiao Bao or `little treasure`, became an international star by mimicking the King of Pop`s dance moves.

Dancing since he was two years old, he has now mastered the moonwalk and other signature Jackson moves, performing them to hits such as "Beat It", "Billie Jean" and "Dangerous".

The boy has appeared on US television show `Ellen` and performed at the World Expo 2010, which opened in Shanghai this month.

Xiao Bao draws curious crowds whenever he breaks into a dance routine, which his mother Bian Aiqing says happens almost every time he hears music.

"When he was young, we just started playing music to him and he started moving around like this. But we didn`t think that he had such a strong feeling for music," the Telegraph quoted Bian as saying.
