There are three kinds of rhythm used in dance.

Motor rhythm - dancing (walking) to the musical beat
Breath rhythm - dancing (walking) to the musical phrase
Emotional rhythm - dancing (walking) to the musical surges of emotion

These concepts are from Doris Humphrey's "The Art Of Making Dances" They can definitely be applied to partner dancing.

I think every person is capable of doing at least one of these rhythms when walking, so I think they can dance, too.
