In brief: 600-900 calories/hr.

Calorie expenditure is dependent upon the your weight, fitness level and activity intensity.
Assuming intense dancing activity in an average adult, you will probably burn 600-900 calories per hour.

In brief: It varies

It depends on just how intense the exercise is, but a general estimate is that with moderate or intense exercise you burn roughly 10 kcal per minute.
