Back decades ago some people with time on their hands came up with a large number of fancy words describing every type of phobia they could think of --- and the exercise isn't really useful. Basically, one needs to recognize that you're describing a Phobic Anxiety Disorder, and the treatment for that would apply. The few varieties where there's some value in specifying sub-types would be agoraphobia, and social anxiety disorder, and there's a flavour on that in your complaint, too. I wonder whether this is genuinely a fear of dancing ( if you danced all by yourself, alone in a room, would you feel bad ? ) so much as a social phobic fear of standing out in a crowd, standing up in front of other people and doing something that might make people look at you --- and assuming that they would somehow find fault with you ?
All these phobias respond well to treatment of two types. Some medications also used to treat depression can help, and so does CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, a form of talking treatment
