Wearing intricately embroidered tunics, Wodaabe male charm dancers stand side by side forming a long line in front of admiring women. Shoulder to shoulder they quiver forward on tiptoe to accentuate their heigh and launch into a series of wildly exaggerated facial expressions from which their charm, magnetism and personality will be judged: eyes roll, teeth flash, lips purse part and tremble and cheeks pout in short puffs of breath.
