|12:45 pm - Good on the dance floor|
Watch the BBC video explaining the terms
Fill in the questionnaire asking what your dance style is
Bollocky pseudo-scientific theory:
It turns out that women prefer small to medium size movements, and enjoy a level of complexity that includes an apparently random element... Could our genes be quietly advertising their suitability through the shapes we cut on the dance floor? Peter Lovatt ... wants to know if it's the men with the highest exposure to prenatal testosterone who are delivering on the dance floor.
Quick! Bring reassuring order to complexity!
Alas I see no "violent flailing" option.
I prefer to say I'm 'enjoying a level of complexity that includes an apparently random element'
Hum. My other youthful dance style woulda been "inappropriate groping": I suppose that could also be thusly defined. God bless the apparently random element.
Um... depends on the music, and the floorspace available?
said. And if I'm going to be picky and specialist, it will depend on whether I'm dancing solo or in a group, tribal or Egyptian, and if the latter, whether it's cabaret, baladi, shaabi etc.
I suspect that clicking on the link will just add to my simmering anger. What the heck, I'm sure it's rant time.
It's fairly harmless unscientific bollox this time.
His demonstration of the types of dance is amusing though
Reminded me of an old Monty Python skit - totally hilarious silliness.
