Sammandrag: Dance is a fundamental form of human expression that likely evolved together with music as a way of generating rhythm. It requires specialized mental skills. One brain area houses a representation of the body's orientation, helping to direct our movements through space; another serves as a synchronizer of sorts, enabling us to pace our actions to music. Unconscious entrainment—the process that causes us to absentmindedly tap our feet to a beat—reflects our instinct for dance. It occurs when certain subcortical brain regions converse, bypassing higher auditory areas.
