Whatever floats your boat...

The flamenco dancer is from Carlos Saura's "Flamenco" (1995), and the ballet dancers are from "Dancing for Mr. B" (1989),

The rhythms of different energies sync up in strange ways all around us. There's an important answer in that somewhere, I think.

I imagine that flamenco and ballet are built on common cultural foundations. I'm wondering what might result if I combined dances from widely separated traditions. Would the more congruent--bad word choice--pairings share other parallels?

I didn't do anything to match the sequences together. I was just laid them one on top of the other (keying stuff out in various ways) and noticed they seemed to lock in at various. So I decided to leave well enough alone and post this as is. 

I wish I understood just a little about music, especially about rhythm. I think it would help my editing a lot.

Geoff, you illustrated in your comment exactly what I was thinking about as I watched. Sometimes while we have a movie or PBS on the television, we'll pop in a new music track we're working on to give it a listen on the big speakers and somehow the video that is randomly running with the music syncs up. In fact MOST of the time it will sync up for long stretches in rhythm and sometimes even theme content and we are always thrilled by the phenomenon.

...and from what I've seen of your editing, you already got rhythm, Man, you just probably think of it as something else when you feel it. A rose by any other name....

the two videos went well together with the music.
