it depends. do you not dance because you have zero interest? or do you not dance because you're bad (but secretly would be interested if you could get better)?
if you have zero interest, period, no game will convince you to like it.
when i first started going to dances and clubs, i hated dancing. i just sucked. i was one of those guys that just bobbed up and down. trying to look cool with the lame hand waving to hip hop music. the more crowded, the better for me (so I could become invisible).
but once my girlfriends started showing me how to dance (because girls love to dance and they didn't want to be embarrassed in front of strangers), I didn't mind going to less crowded places (you can't do any moves unless there's room). and the cool thing is once you go beyond the bobbing up and down, girls actually gravitate toward you. of course, this is just for dancing. bets are off if they're actually interested in you. I still fear dancing (takes a girl to actually get me to go) but it's actually pretty fun to do.
now, Dance Central won't make you a dancing guru. and most of its moves are too sensationalistic for the club (they were pulled from music vids) unless you're really good and can pull it off without looking lame (and let's face it, good looking guys can do whatever and get away with it, but the rest of us can't). but the principles can be used (how to move your hips, how to transition, etc.). like with anything else in life, once you know the principles, you can improvise. now you can understand how that stud at the club does his thing and you can pull off some of his stuff. and there's some great music to be played in this game (just wish there was more tracks!) and any game where you can develop rhythm and where people can have a good laugh can't be all that bad.
the things that dance central 2 needs is online multiplayer and a bigger track selection. they could also improve the learning mode so that you could learn any move any time without having to go through a whole routine in sequential order. that would move it from a great review to an excellent review. they would've knocked it out of the ballpark if they had 40+ tracks and online play.
