Why do people want to dance at a wedding reception?

My fiancé and I do not go dancing. My friends do not have dancing at their parties. Out of a guest list of around 80, I would say maybe 5 make an effort to go dancing in their regular lives. So why are we expected to provide "Brick House" and a smooth surface because we are getting married? OK, I know we don't HAVE to do this, I just want to understand why everyone wants and expects dancing at a wedding when dancing is totally off the radar the rest of the time.
