In this article Steven Brown and Lawrence M. Parsons provide fresh insight into the brain mechanisms behind dance and its evolution, which is highly intertwined with the emergences of both language and music. They propose a view of dance as a marriage of the representational capacity of language and the rhythmicity of music. This interaction allows people not only to tell stories using their bodies but to do so while synchronizing their movements with others’ in a way that fosters social cohesion.
