Welcome to J.SE!
The Talmud prescribes extra blessings to be said at any after-parties held several days after the wedding; if it's an "encore wedding" (as Miss Manners would say), that period is a few days shorter.
But as for the dancing at the wedding itself, it's really a matter of taste decided by the people involved. My impression is the most common thing is to have dancing, but a much smaller crowd. (My father once attended a second marriage where the emcee announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time, Mr. & Mrs. Joe Schwartz!"1 and my father thought - er um, no not really.) I spoke with a very seasoned rabbi who said he's seen second weddings that ranged from very quiet affairs to all-out bashes on par with a typical first wedding.
