Scientists at Northumbria University and the University of Gottingen in the United Kingdom have figured out which dance styles are most attractive to females.
According to the Washington Post, 30 males were chosen for a study in which they danced to a drum beat for 30 seconds long. Afterwards, 37 women were chosen to rate the performance of the males’ dance moves on a scale of 1-7 with 7 being the best.
The dancers were recorded via “a sophisticated motion-capture system”. Their routines were then converted into animated, dancing avatars which the women observed.
