I put salsa dancing on my resume. I actually got asked about the dancing thing on one of my interviews, so that's probably a good sign.

Define "feminine interests". Cooking would probably be fine, "makeover parties" or "fashion" might be a bit much.

I think any interest is fine as long as it's not generic ("reading") or inappropriate ("reading about how to cook meth")

Does it make you sound well-rounded, or does it make you sound like a twit?

Cooking, dance, yoga: ok
Knitting, sewing, scrapbooking: maybe one, but not a whole list of them
Designer shoes, makeup, celebrity gossip: no
