LONDON: Men who want to carve up the dancefloor should take a good look at their bodies before launching into a waltz or foxtrot in the hope of impressing a woman.
Scientists have discovered that the best male dancers tend to have more symmetrical body features, in a study that suggests dancing ability may be sexually appealing because it conveys useful information about a man's physical fitness.
Many species, including humans, are known to prefer mates with symmetrical features, which are thought to show good health, sound genes and a lack of parasites, all of which may enhance reproductive success.
The research indicates dancing ability could be another signal of these traits, helping people, particularly women, to choose an appropriate mate.
SRS, this could be important.
