Scientists say they've carried out the first rigorous analysis of dance moves that make men attractive to women.

The researchers say that movements associated with good dancing may be indicative of good health and reproductive potential.

Their findings are published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters.

"When you go out to clubs people have an intuitive understanding of what makes a good and bad dancer," said co-author Dr Nick Neave, an evolutionary psychologist at Northumbria University, UK.

"What we've done for the very first time is put those things together with a biometric analysis so we can actually calculate very precisely the kinds of movements people focus on and associate them with women's ratings of male dancers."

Dr Neave asked young men who were not professional dancers, to dance in a laboratory to a very basic drum rhythm and their movements with 12 cameras.

These movements were then converted into a computer-generated cartoon - an avatar - which women rated on a scale of one to seven. He was surprised by the results.

Dr Neave also took blood samples from the volunteers. Early indications from biochemical tests suggest that the men who were better dancers were also more healthy.

If dancing was a direct indication of health, what condition would you be in? I'd probably be in a coma. And on fire.

Anyways, what do you think of the findings?

I think physically healthy and a healthy sexual appetite are two different things... maybe.

Also, I can dance if I want to, but won't I be leaving my friends (behind) for dead?

I Hardcore dance. Therefore I'm in an unstable mental condition.

That's probably not saying much

This isn't true. I dance all day every day, including when I'm waiting on people at work. And I'm always sick. 'Course, I drink and smoke too much.. And eat terribly.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

What does it say about women? I suck at dancing. Infact, the only real move I can do is the worm..which, well, isnt really considered good these days. Of course, my other signature moves include the robot and the running man. I can do a mean fist pump too.


You see the trend...im not a very good dancer

I think having beautiful plumage also plays a part. when a male's tail feathers are splayed and shimmering while he's gyrating amidst a crowd of his peers, a girl finds it hard to resist.

crap, I just realized this is about health. well, yeah, that makes sense. dancing is a taxing activity.

I should really be dead a few times over according to this.

Its ok, we can share the dance moves and spread our terrible mad dancing skills all around the clubs TOGETHER !

I'm in fantastic shape, but I can't dance for shit.

This study makes no sense. There reason better dancers are more fit is because dancing involves exercise. People who dance a lot get more exercise and are better at it, and are therefore more fit.

It's like saying that people who can run longer distances are in better shape.

No shit, sherlock.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

^ They didn't use proffessional dancers though and the tests were biochemical

I think I have read somewhere that when women see men who can dance, they're more attracted because it reflects on how they will preform sexually, or men who can dance just are better in the sack. Seems believable to me.

Frankly if you managed to post this thread while in a coma and on fire, I would say you're incredibly healthy.
