"Dancing could be described as the rhythmic moving of the legs, arms and body usually changing positions within the floor space available and whether or not accompanied by musical support."

That definition would appear to mean that walking and running must count as dancing.

On the other hand you could argue that since "hands legs and body" have to be moving, Irish step dancing, where the hands are held at the side of the body without moving, is not covered. Perhaps that's where the tradition of doing it that way originates...
