Incorrect?

Hi,

You misunderstood that is the correct grammar in the sentence.

This sentence works: She recognized the song, but hadn't danced to the tune, nor considered it for her act..

Sorry - I meant to ask, why the sentence with "or" instead of "nor" was incorrect.

Hi,

The word nor works better in describing her consideration of using the music for the act, since she never danced to it.
