Off the top of my head, you can waltz, 2-step, polka, and double shuffle.  You could probably also pull off a swing dance and a jitterbug if you know what you're doing.  Very danceable.

Daft Punk and Chic are danceable too, but I can't choose one album.

I have no dance rhythm. Semi-embarassing story: the only time in my life I managed to enjoy dancing was at the George Thorogood concert I saw at Red Rocks many moons ago. Of course, I was 'shroomed to the gills..

It came darn close sisterpants, darn close. I also almost posted Low Life by New Order, so that would have been even more epic.
