Is this a dancing lady orchid(oncidium)? If so, they require
high light with little if any direct sunlight. To increase
humidity around the plant, use a tray thats at least 4-5
inches high, place gravel in the tray (3 -4 inches worth)
then keep about an inch of water in the gravel at all
times. Your orchid will sit on the gravel, but not directly in the water. This will increase humidity.

Yes its an Oncidium, but I don't understand the post. Are you asking a question or are you giving advice?

Iam looking for the orchid named 'Dancing lady'. I can't seem to find anyone on the net who sells it. Does anyone know who might sell it.

Hey there!

There seems to be a bit of confusion here. "Dancing Lady orchid" refers to a Genus of orchids (and some that are in the same alliance), not a single species or plant. So "Dancing lady" really is more of a description of the type of flower that are typical of the Oncidiums, just like "moth orchid" refers to Phalaenopsis and it's hybrids.

There are a lot of places to buy Oncidiums. Take a look at the Vendor Feedback section of the forums to check out different vendor websites. Once you are on the site of a vendor you can search for plants by their Genus name.

I hope that makes sense and I hope it helps.

And here's a link to the AOS page on Oncidiums.
