is dancing in front of women allowed, that is dancing to the duff etc and in the case that there are no provocative moves?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Dancing is the custom of the non-Muslims and absolutely Haraam. Dancing consists of other impermissible acts such as, music, singing, interaction with sexes etc.

It will not be permissible for a person to dance even in the presence of their same gender. Also, the uses of Duff and dancing even without any stimulation and excitement will not be permissible.

Allah Ta'ala says,

"And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e.music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, the Verses of the Qur'an) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire)."
(31: 6)

Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa salam) has said, "Whosoever impersonates a nation (other than Islam) will be (resurrected) from them on the day of judgment". (Sunan Abu Dawud)

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
