I found this on Henkjan Honing's Music Matters blog (link here). For some reason, I find this research really exciting.

It's a fascinating TEDx Amsterdam talk by Honing, summarising research on 'beat induction' in human beings. The basic gist of it is that human beings appear to be hard-wired from birth with musical skills that are quite complex.

I'm wondering what practical applications this sort of research might have for dance teachers. I'm already trying to come up with ways to work this into my teaching patter...
