The dancing flames are not heating the flame sensor properly. Close down the air shutter on the burner(s) until the flames settled down, and the problem should disappear.

Where is the air shutter ?
Expert:  johnnn40 replied 2 years ago.
It's a metal disc that fits over the front end of a burner, and it can be rotated, after loosening a hold down screw, to adjust the air flow into the burner for proper flame. The flame should float just above the burner holes, and be blue with a small yellow/orange tip.
