I don't dance...because I can't dance.

I was in ballet until about 7 years old. I've danced for school things on stage in elementary. Somehow this didn't transfer at all to my adult life. I get invited to go clubbing and there are military balls (which pretty much just have club dancing) that I sorta have to go to....but I don't want to be that person always sitting on the sidelines for the rest of my life.

I'm now horribly shy about dancing. I don't have the option of taking classes near me and I'm not interested in finding local clubs until I at least can "move my hips" so to speak, so I'm looking for recommendations on using the power of the internet. I have decent brain-to-feet coordination, but I don't even know where to start. I have a large area available to practice in, and I'm very good at understanding movement and space as if from behind or above etc.
Do you know of some good YouTube or site series lessons on getting into dancing?
Please don't tell me to "just get out there". I already tried that and someone told me to sit down rather ungently. I'm trying to avoid that extremely hurtful scenario again as much as I can with at least some prep.
