Brush up on those dance moves, fellas! Scientists have figured out what women want on the dancefloor.
Researchers at Northumbria University and the University of Gottingen found that women rated male dancers higher when they showed larger and more variable movements of the head, neck and torso.
Speed of leg movements mattered too, particularly bending and twisting the right knee. But arm movement was discovered to have no effect on a woman’s perception of dancing abilities. Hear that, guys? Stop flailing around!
