I have absolutely no medical knowledge to back up this answer but I will safely say that dancing is one of the best cardio workouts ever. You never see fat dancers. When I went to clubs as a young man I could drink all night because I stayed on the dance floor and burned the alcohol off as fast as I drank it. I also never acquired the proverbial beer gut.So to answer your question yes dancing will help reduce fat as fast if not faster than jogging and walking. It is also a lot more fun.

Do you burn more calories while walking or jogging?

When it comes to burning calories, your heart rate is much more important than what it is that you are doing. If you can reach and sustain the same heart rate for the same amount of time you will burn pretty much the same amount of calories regardless of activity.But probably, jogging would get your heart rate up more than walking, so for the same period of time, jogging would burn more calories.

Why was the treadmill made?

The treadmill is a machine that is used by people to do exercises like walking, jogging and running at home. It was designed for people who do not have the time or the facilities (like a jogging track) to perform an efficient workout. This machine helps you achieve the same results as you would get from a jogging track from the comfort of your home. Note: A treadmill is good but it can never replace a good round of jogging in a jogging track. If you have tracks around your home you are better off using them.

Is there any chance to convert your vibration like walking and dancing into electrical energy?

Yes. Any motion at all can be captured and converted to electricity. However, unless you are harnessing a consistent motion (such as the spinning wheel of a bike) the results are rarely worth the effort or costs involved. For walking the best results for harnessing its electrical potential would be through the use of a resistance treadmill or a large walking/jogging wheel (like a hamster wheel). Even the impact of feet to floor can be harnessed but with current technology this is clunky and not very practical.
