Perhaps this is why it's easier to dance when you listen to the music:

Rhythm does more than move us. For athletes, the right tunes can sharpen focus, boost performance and minimize pain.

How music affects athletic performance begins with the eighth nerve from the ear, which has two direct tracks: one that involves hearing, and another that goes straight to the vestibular system, that part of the cerebellum that manages balance and some motor functions. The same kinds of messages from the cerebellum that enable us to concentrate also encourage maximum performance. So when the right kind of music hits that eighth nerve, all sorts of good messages get sent to the cerebellum.

I don't know about athletes, like the ones who play football or hockey--but dancing is an entirely different thing.

Music and dancing are both expressive arts. They just cater to different senses, that's all. They're both about rhythm, they both involve sounding good (tuning instruments, practise, breath control, etc.) and looking pretty (the concept of line, turnout, pointing your feet in ballet)--and they're used together quite a lot.

It's just a matter of finding the right place in your head that connects the two.

And that's how we get choreographers :D.
