Module Two Post One (Symmetrical People Make Better Dancers)

This website talk about how symmetrical people make better dancers. A research was conducted involving 183 Jamaican teenagers, ranging between 14-19 years old, who danced while their movements were captured using motion-capture cameras. These cameras are similar to those used in video games and movies to give computer-generated characters fluid movements. The researchers conducting the experiment found that men judged to be better dancers tended to have a higher degree of body symmetry. The researchers speculate that higher body symmetry might also indicate better neuromuscular coordination. Symmetry is an important part of dance because it helps dancers balance, as well as make the dance seem more appealing.
