If you're moving it counts as cardio.

As the others said, yes! Definitly counts as cardio!

When I first started working out I would do an hour or so of Just Dance (the video game) and I lost at least 10 pounds due to it!

Thats my favorite way to work out since its so fun!

I am sure it does. If anything, it's a confidence booster you have no issues shaking that booty at a party or a club (if your 21 :p)  trust   me I've got two left feet...I can't dance to save my life! After I started working out with the dancing with stars alone in my privacy, I felt less awkward about body. Nothing like building your stamina and dancing :)
