This dancer sends her experiences thru the sensors she attaches to her body .
Her lovers name is something like Pyrimus . He is the head of security . He doesnt like ggoing on the outside of the ship . The folks talking the psychic inducing drug can cope with being out beyond known space . I really liked this book if any one recognizes it and knows its name or author please let us know .

I agree it sounds like StarDance. A fairly intriguing SF story.

Dancers? Dolphins? Drugs?
And on a space station?

Yup, sounds like Hellstar by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry (1984) to me.

Not many reviews online but I can confirm a few things: uplifted dolphins help with navigation, there is an addictive psych drug, and dancing plays a big role. It’s a psychedelic sci fi - very Carlos Castaneda meets Timothy Leary with a dash of hard sci fi and ship malfunctioning weirdness.

Summary: “Earth's first colony ship to the stars is going fine, several decades into its trip to a distant habitable planet. The 8000 inhabitants are healthy and happy in their metal torus. But slowly things start going wrong - mechanical failures and strange physical phenomena manifest themselves with increasing frequency, and soon the population starts showing the strain. A serial killer and a dangerous recreational drug don't help things either.”
