Psychologists have finally found a scientific answer to what moves make someone a good dancer.

The researchers used motion-capture technology to track dancers’ movements, then mapped them onto digital avatars.

People have then been encouraged to rate the moves from each avatar’s dance. It turns out that the moves judged best for women involve wide swings of the hips and asymmetrical leg movements, coupled with moderate amounts of asymmetrical arm movements.

On the male side, viewers are most attracted to guys who move their upper body a lot, especially the neck and torso. This apparently signals more muscularity, which biologically would make a male a good mate. (No mention of twerking as being appealing whatsoever!)
