Well Bach was first and foremost an organist and as far as dancing, I can tell you as an organist, when playing Bach's organ music (fantasias and fugues in particular) the pedal parts are very similar to, no, they are, dancing. There is not any part of the body you don't use when playing a large organ piece.
