One hour of hip-hop dancing can burn 370 to 610 calories, depending on a person's gender, body weight and muscle mass, reports Fitness Blender. Different dance styles also cause significant variance in calorie burning. A person weighing between 120 and 190 pounds normally burns 380 to 450 calories per hour.
Cosmopolitan indicated that any aerobic dancing, which involves consistently active movement, burns 443 calories per hour. Break dancing is among the highest calorie-burning dance styles, reports Fitness Blender, with 400 to 650 calories burned per hour as the norm. Pole dancing and slow folk dancing are among the lower-end calorie burners at 250 to 330 calories per hour.
