is 'Thandav Stotra' same as THANDAV NACH? That which ShivJi does to bring about destruction in the Universe.

Also is THANDAV NAACH a technical dance form in the same vein as Kathak, Bharatnatyam etc or something exclusive to the spiritual world?

Fateh.

Tandava is a form of dance. I know it's quite popular in South India where it is danced mainly by women worshippers of Shiva, though it is a pretty vigorous and requires a lot of energy. There are supposedly many forms of thandava though, not all of them violent and aggressive. Some of the moves from the more violent forms of tandava, like rudra tandava, have martial applications.

Stotra is just the name of a form of hymn in praise of a particular Devi or Devata.
