Is it possible to overcome a morbid fear of dancing?

I can't dance when there's even a small chance that somebody I know might see me. It's not that I feel uncomfortable doing it - my body just freezes up, physically, like a stone, and I have to exit. I've been like this since I was about ten.
I love music, I play several instruments, I have a good sense of rhythm. I just have this extreme phobia.
Substance abuse doesn't help unless I take it to such extremes that I have no recollection of what transpired.
Is there a name for this condition? Have you ever overcome, or do you know someone who has overcome this type of thing?
