What are some possible explanations for why church authorities so often tried to limit dancing by Christians?

They include:

Dancing may lead to promiscuity because a vanity is aroused and cultivated which imperiously craves indulgence.

Dancing may lead to Idol worship such that society looks with contempt upon the employment of a dancing-master. All think they know his social position and character. As a class, dancing-masters are excluded from the intimacies of refined society—are indolent, dissolute and bankrupt in fortune or morals. Possibly this opinion does injustice to some exceptional cases.

It also reneges on the peaceful and calm nature of most church doctrines.
