    Interesting article, especially this:

    "the motor regions of professional dancers' brains show more activation when they watch other dancers compared with people who don't dance."

    It seems like a partial analysis, insofar as there's mention only of music and movement. The element of physical contact would also seem like a fundamental component. (I looked for a good, "science of touch," link, but didn't find one in a cursory web search.)

    Not all dancing involves a partner.
