Apparently dads start looking like schmucks on the dance floor even earlier than we thought. A new survey found that "dad dancing" officially starts at age 37.


Your dad's dancing starts to embarrass you around age 13, and continues to embarrass you for the next 17 years. Around age 30, you stop being embarrassed, and start to think it's endearing.

A third of people said their dad thinks he's a really good dancer. But 37% have been embarrassed by their dad's moves. 30% think he's danced badly on purpose, just to embarrass them.

The top five dad-dancing songs are "Stayin' Alive" by The Bee Gees, "You Sexy Thing" by Hot Chocolate, "Waterloo" by ABBA, "Lady in Red" by Chris de Burgh, and "Let's Dance" by David Bowie.

According to the survey, dancing is only the fourth most-embarrassing thing dads do though. The top three are telling bad jokes, dressing with no style, and stinking up the bathroom.
