When I first started dancing, I thought of it was a good way to meet women. Now, I kinda like the fact that dance communities have structure and rules. Not that I wouldn't date someone if we both fancied each other but I no longer go for that purpose.
Dancing is fun and there's a community of support and its sustainable because it's just platonic friendships for the most part. Also, as a guy who spent a lot of his 20s going to bars/clubs, I like how there's no pressure to "get the girl."
