It's possible to do with Advanced Find and Replace.
Question: what resulting text should be for your example?

Go to main menu - Action - Options - Batch Replace
check "Modifier S"

Go to Batch replace tab, check on "Use regular expressions".
Put into the grid, search for:
(#NOTES:\r\ndance-single:.*\d+)\d:
Replace with:
$1:

That's all I verified it works perfectly.

Please send a sample file to support@abacre.com
It's probably a problem of trailing spaces.

Thank you for the file.
Yes, indeed, it was a problem of trailing spaces before dance-single: text

Therefore use Search For:
(#NOTES:.*\d+)\d:

Exactly, replace it with $1:

In fact $1 will take text located between () in Search For part.
and : is a separator after last digit defined by \d
