The word dance in regards to the daffodils personifies a a group of individuals or a "crowd."

Its repetitive use signifies the difference between man and society and an individual. Note, Wordsworth metaphorically compares the narrator to a cloud.

This poem has a religious theme, but it is based more on Spirituality than Christianity. The poem's main theme is nature, and yes, society does make it in there, but it's not a strong theme....... it actually builds on the theme of nature and how society and nature are in distinct opposition to one another.
