I think of Dizzy when I think of Bebop, so here's one I know TOdd And naomi did a routine too, although they spliced and cut their version all up...

Yeah, Dizzy Atmosphere I think was the tune.

There are plenty of bebop tracks that you could dance to, especially early Chralie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, or Thelonious Monk (try Straight, No Chaser). But keep in mind that the dancing starts to become it's own thing, and bebop was where jazz started to become for listening over for dancing.

Lots of dance in the clip, parnter dancing at 29:30

There are some fine tunes to bal to from the 1940s when swing is changing into bop.
