    I would suggest that different cultures value different things.  There is
no question that as culture or sub-culture of America,  Black Americans value
dance highly and therefore excel as a culture in this area.  I am not sure
you can attribute this to "natural talent" necessarily.  If so,  then many
people in this sub-culture seem to have missed out on the natural talent
part.  Just go to a place where people or dancing and you will see many
people without any real sense of rhythm or discernable talent dancing have fun.
