You need a model (either skinned on a hierarchical skeleton or just hierarchical blocks). Then you need to figure out how to draw the model based on different skeleton poses (look up "skinning" and "posing"). Then you need to figure out how to pose the skeleton to make it look like it's dancing (or break down and acquire some motion capture data).

I provided all the keywords. Plug the appropriate ones into www.google.com (http://www.google.com) and watch the web come through for you once again.
