The dancing waiter

A part of being Crazy Waiter is to know how to move. Being in a restaurant with a lot of princesses, I waltz sometimes with the kids. Or I do stupid discodance moves. It’s only a problem that I don’t have a talent for dancing (it took me ages to learn the Mickeydance – and still it looked aweful), but hey… as long as the kids laugh it’s good enough…

Also in private life, after work it can be very helpful. Scientists have found out which movements are most attractive for women. So watch carefully and imitate and the most beautiful girls will be yours 🙂

Movement plays an important role in animal courtship, with males typically performing elaborate courtship dances to display their health and skill, and thus attract females. Here, using advanced computer-generated avatars, we show that the size and variability of movements of the trunk, head and neck, and the speed of the right knee are strongly associated with female perceptions of the quality of male dancing. This avatar is demonstrating ‘good dancing’.

This research was published in the Royal Society journal ‘Biology Letters’, in the paper ‘Male dance moves that catch a woman’s eye’, by Nick Neave, Kristofor McCarty, Jeanette Freynik, Nicholas Caplan, Johannes Honekopp, and Bernhard Fink. The doi link for the article is
