Well, when I go dancing I generally dance Techno, Minimal (you know, the German Minimal), Electro, DnB, Goa...
I often find myself doing sort of Tetris movements in Jackson's style.
When I started the livelooping project I had in mind more funny stuff like the German Ricoloop.
Then I went spontaneously more on the Techno Beatbox so I even had to change looper because the Rang III does not allow a very quick control over the loops (dj style).
All this is to tell you, that I would do DnB, Breakbeats, with touches of goa/trance/techno, and even moment of calm minimal eventually.
But it is impossible to really give you the best advice if I do not know what your brother wants!
You should ask him which kind of mood/atmosphere he wants.
I did theater many years. That is or should be my profession (it is 10 years now, that I don't).
I can help you a bit.
But you must know if your brother wants something more 80's, something more funny, something more electronic, something more dark, or sunny, etc.
You can adapt Jackson's style of dancing to many music, as far as they have a nice rhythm with variations and breaks.
Let me know.

Subject: Performing with a dancer
My brother and I are collaborating for a talent show. Some of you might remember me posting about my first looping performance on stage last year. Well this is the same place. He dances, I loop. The scary part is I dont know how to make this work. He does dance moves such as michael jackson or usher. I need some advice on being able to perform something danceable because i find it a little tough to make something that changes a lot to keep the audience's interest.
