Catholic fact check: Did the Vatican condemn dancing?

In 2017, a Catholic parish's website published a document, “The Church’s Official Position on Dances,” which stated (among other things): “What is the Church’s official position on dances? Believe it or not, the Church does have an official position on it. […] ]T]he unmarried morally cannot have a part in dances that have bodily contact."1 Short answer To argue that you have “the Church's official position” on anything is a grave claim, and should be relatively straightforward to defend.
