   I don't know if this is a first, but The Times has an editorial on dance today. It's headed "Natural-Born Tappers" and is inspired by research by Bruno Repp, an American psychologist, which suggests that human beings possess an internal metronome. The original article, for which I cannot find a link, is in the Journal of Experimental Psychology. The link to the Times editorial is:
