One location is easier to get to than the other
Like a few other TMs in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you can find Swords Dance (TM 088) in a few spots. The first one is easier to get to than the second though, so keep that in mind!
Location 1: You can find Swords Dance (TM 088) below the Asado Desert, near a cliffside windmill
The easier to locate Swords Dance capsule is on the west Paldea sea border, south of the Asado Desert.
You can walk all the way up there following the mountain path: then near the top, veer left and look for an errant yellow TM capsule lying on a mountain shelf (you’ll see a windmill to your left). That’s Swords Dance.
Location 2: Swords Dance (TM 088) can also be located in the northeastern portion of Paldea
It’s completely out of the way, but you can find another Swords Dance TM capsule in the northeastern corner of the map, to the east of the Glaseado Mountains, and to the north of the desert/cavernous area above Levincia.
This copy of Swords Dance is found in a basin, with tons of Golducks (among other Pokemon). Note that you will need the climbing ability to get all the way up there easily: as it’s on the peak of the mountain.
