THIS explains why I can't dance!
Great news! According to scientists at the University of Montreal, your complete lack of rhythm might not be your fault. They've actually identified a condition called "BEAT DEAFNESS," where a person's brain actually can't PROCESS a musical beat . . . which makes it impossible to properly dance to it. Unfortunately, before you say "Well that explains it, I am a horrible dancer because I have beat deafness" . . . there's only been one documented case of this EVER in the entire history of mankind. That doesn't mean there's only one human in history who had beat deafness . . . he's just the only one who had it diagnosed. He's a 23-year-old who's been identified at Mathieu, and the team at the University of Montreal has been studying his case. They believe that beat deafness comes from a disconnect in the brain between the area that identifies rhythm and the area that controls movement.
