  1. These Are The Most Attractive Dance Moves as Tested by Science

    "Shift weight from side to side and wave arms awkwardly" has proven effective in my own research.

    Trying to impress someone with your dance moves? There's science for that. Researchers investigated and uncovered which dance moves women find most appealing, which means that, most importantly, we can now say with certainty that the most attractive dance moves are "scientifically accurate ones." It's a good day to be a nerd.

    My research will be into why this contest isn't called PhDance.

    The "Dance Your Ph.D." contest, sponsored by Science journal publisher AAAS, tasks students with expressing their research through, well, dance. This year's winner was biologist Uma Nagendra, who just happens to have a leg—and several other limbs—up on the rest of the competition with her double life as a circus aerialist. Hit the jump for a priceless music video about mayonnaise that also came in as a finalist.

  5. Speaking of Dancing Groot, Guess Who Provided the Moves?

    What, isn't every conversation about dancing Groot right now?

    Just a few hours ago we posted the official video of Groot from the end of Guardians of the Galaxy dancing his tiny twiggy heart out. But as much as we want to pretend that giant talking trees are real and hanging out in actual space, Groot does not actually exist. So whose dance moves were those?

  7. A Bunch of Babies Listened to the Backstreet Boys for Scientific Research

    Think carefully, baby: Howie or A.J.?

    At what point does an infant's response to music transition from unrelated flailing to busting a baby move? A group of scientists undeterred by extreme cuteness observed a bunch of babies "dancing" to The Backstreet Boys to examine when humans develop a sense of rhythm (and if, right? I can't be the only one).

  8. Stow Your Second-Hand Embarrassment and Watch Billy Dee Williams Do a Star Wars Cha Cha On Dancing With the Stars

    To be fair to Billy Dee, it's less him in particular I find embarrassing and more this entire show. It just makes me cringe. Even that snazzy Lando-esque cape with the spangly gold lining cannot rescue this video for me. I demand a memory wipe for the last five minutes of my life. Bail Organa, hook me up?

  10. Tom Hiddleston vs. Benedict Cumberbatch: The Dance-Off [VIDEO]

    The real winner is anyone who watches this.

    The internet loves Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Their incredible performances (as Loki and Sherlock, in particular) kind of don't even hold a candle to their real-life charm. But an important question remains: whose moves are smoother, Hiddles' or Cummerbund's? You'll have to decide for yourself.

  14. Superheroes Can Dance If They Want To, They Can Leave Their Sidekicks Behind

    Faster than a speeding bullet!

    Being a superhero is a stressful job. Sometimes when you're defending Gotham/Metropolis/New York/CIRCLE CITY NAME HERE you just need to take a few minutes to unwind. (Looking at you, Bats.) By, say, cutting a rug. Artist Jesse Lonergan has illustrated what that might look like with his wonderful series of dancing superheroes. We've put some of our favorites behind the cut, including some boogying heroes of the genderswapped variety, but if you go to Lonergan's Tumblr you'll find a lot more characters getting their groove on—including examples from Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, and more. Oh, and I've also included a non-dancing drawing of the Hulk playing a flute. Because reasons. (via: /Film)

  15. Andrew Garfield’s Dance Skills & Pop-Culture Knowledge Are Tested On Ellen [VIDEO]

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    If you're booked on Ellen it's a known fact you will probably be asked to dance at some point during the show. The context may not always be the same but it's always something to watch. In this particular instance Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield was asked to perform several different types of dances on the spot. For each one he got correct, $1000 would go to charity. The thing is, most of the dances required some significant pop-culture awareness, something I'm sure not a lot of actors actually have considering they're too busy being a part of that very culture. Regardless, Garfield pretty much nailed them all. Give it a look.

  16. U.S. Navy Programs Robot to Dance Gangnam Style [Video]

    When they aren't figuring out how to protect the country from the Ukrainian attack dolphins, scientists developing technology for the U.S. navy likes to dance. Unfortunately, most of them don't have any rhythm, so they program their robots to dance for them. Case in point, CHARLI-2, an Autonomous Shipboard Humanoid (ASH), knows how to dance Gangnam-style. He may be a little late to the K-Pop party, he makes for up for it with commitment and enthusiasm. Let's all give CHARLI a round of applause... Before he decides to turn against his human masters.
