Researchers from Northumbria University says they have identified the male dance moves that best influence female perceptions of whether their dance skills are good or bad. The findings were published in the Royal Society Journal Biology Letters
. The researchers say
female perceptions of good dance quality were influenced most greatly by "large and varied movements involving the neck and trunk."
Here is a video from the researchers that shows an avatar performing good and bad dance moves. The first part of the video shows dance moves the researchers discovered are bad dance moves and the second part shows dance moves that are good. Based on the crazy dance moves in the video that are meant to resemble "good dancing" we think they may need to conduct their research again. You can also see the good dance moves video here
