Why does a dance appear on request lists for years when so many others just come and go? I think it's the music ...all but our most immediate experiences are stored in long-term memory. Having a song running through my brain, even when I'm not making any sound, is more like singing than listening. The left brain is activating representations of the words of the song and what they mean, the right brain is calling up the tones, musical structure, and personal feelings, associations and ...the dance steps. My whole brain is stimulated and it is a good feeling! A great piece of music can make me want to stretch my ability to the limit to get the dance pattern into my memory. The more experience I gain with dance patterns ...the easier it is to identify a weakness in choreography. I am addicated to dance but not to music. If I have learned a pattern, I can recall it involuntarily because of the associative pull. Dances of exceptional merit may or may not be different from dances that are honky tonk/social floor classics; both bring dancers pleasure. I can only speak from my experience dancing across the USA and Australia w/input from my dancin' friends. = music in RAM format
