Subject: memes and dancing

Is the urge to dance and dancing itself the result of

People who dance come from all walks of life,
similarly people who don't dance. The initial dancing
meme would likely come from the first time a person
sees dancer(s). I think the URGE to dance comes from
the first dancing meme transmitted but that for the
person to actually take up dancing or learn dance
steps, an entire series or group of memes are
concerned. Also, many of these memes would be
transmitted through body language rather than in
written or vocal form.

For the record, I don't dance but have have the urge
to dance on occasion.
