Apparently the flag is being used as a dance prop...
Hello, spinny, and welcome to the USA-FLAG-Site Forum!
It looks like it's more of a Taekwondo Tournament or Competition demonstration than a "dance". But it's difficult to tell based on what little is shown in the short little video clip.
In my opinion, I would "guess" that it is "OK". I say that only because it looks to me to be somewhat similar to the galloping "Parade of Flags" that you see at the beginning of some rodeos, where a number of riders (on horses) each carrying a U.S. Flag on a staff go racing around the perimiter of the arena before the official presentation of the "Colors" and the playing of the National Anthem before the start of that day's/evening's events.
That's just MY personal opinion, of course. I don't remember reading anything in the U.S. Flag Code that would prohibit it, as long as it's done with respect.

I hope this helps!
