"Step" Merriam Webster def: "Dance" Joyfully along the contra lines, the dancers held hands, listened to the caller, and stepped to the music

    Your question is valid, but please be aware that Urban Dictionary is a terrible resource. It is not a real dictionary and it is full of poorly written entries, private jokes, and general nonsense.

A step song is a song designed for step dancing. It has rhythmic patterns and a melody that go well together with this dance genre.

A step dance is a dance in which steps are emphasized rather than gesture or posture.

In your second sentence, step is used as a verb. To step means to move with measured steps, as in a dance, to dance.
