Thread Name: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Subject: RE: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Is there an authoritative body which defines qualitatively 'genuine folk dancing'?

No, the definition changes according to the needs of each specific discussion. It's a good idea to have everyone in the discussion using the same conditional definition, though. Otherwise you have apples arguing with fish.
