As it dances, Primarina releases balloons of water into the area around itself, moving them using the sound waves from its voice.

    Probably, I missed a Pokémon.
    Edit: Yes, I missed Mega Gardevoir. It is based on ballroom dancer.

They say that about Spinda even though it is much more reminiscent of trying to stand upright when extremely drunk. Because this game is for children.
So I think everyone else has done really well to cover most of the dancing Pokemon but a couple that have been missed are:
•Alolan Marowak (Dancing fire twirler)
•Grumpig (Seen dancing his heart out of various Pokemon cards and atop Pokemon GO Gyms)
I also would like to note that Jynx technically is a dance-based pokemon, as it "seems to use dancing to communicate." according to the pokedex entry.
