This could be a double definition.

'danced' is the first definition.
The answer and definition can be both to do with motion as well as being past participle verbs.

The answer and definition can be both to do with motion as well as being past participle verbs.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'and' is the link.
