So You Think You Can Dance?

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This paper serves to understand if there can be a difference in the brain activity of a professional dancer and an unprofessional dancer. First, a general comparison is made between music and dance to show how they are related and why dance is associated with music often. Secondly, the
    relationship between brain activity and music will be discussed, and then the relationship between Dance and brain activity are broken down into three subtopics: timing, rhythm, and spatial organization in order to explain why people dance and how dance can be a sequentially planned series of movement. To conclude the research, music, dance, and brain activity are related altogether to different brain regions to understand why dance occurs and how its subsequent movements occur. Listening to music requires at least three basic motor control functions: timing, sequencing, and spatial organisation of movement. These functions mediate complex behaviors controlled and interpreted by several cortical regions, subcortical regions, motor areas, and most importantly, mirror neurons by converting incoming sensory information into motor instructions and actions.
