This study discusses the neural mechanism of dance memory and learning, with special attention to the key role of long-term and short-term memory in this process. Dance, as an art form that needs high skill and expressive force, depends on the dancer's ability to remember complex action sequences, keep the consistency of emotional expression and synchronize with music. We find that long-term memory plays a key role in storing and maintaining skills, action sequences and emotional expression in dance learning. This type of memory allows dancers to permanently embed the learned dance elements into their brains, so that they can extract and perform at any time. On the other hand, short-term memory plays a key role in immediate motion control, spatial perception and immediate correction. This type of memory enables dancers to quickly adapt to the ever-changing environment and situation during the performance, ensuring the fluency and accuracy of the performance. In addition, synaptic plasticity has also been proved to be very important in dance learning. Synaptic plasticity allows the connections between neurons in the brain to change during learning and training, which promotes the improvement of skills and the strengthening of memory.
