For words like "Swimming", "basketball", "baseball", “yoga", etc... you have to use the verb 'to do[hada]'. However, in case of 'dance[chum]', you´ll have to use theverb 'to dance'[추다] and say "I can dance" (Ch´umeul ch´ul so itta) And, when saying "play the piano" you must use the verb "play/beat" (ch´ida). Therefore, the correct sentence is "I can play the piano" Now, should we practice this once?
