Me gusta bailar

Why can that not translate as "I like to dance" or must the "literal" option of "dancing is liked by me" then become "I like dancing".

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Using gustar + verb to say like [doing something]"

Hola Garry

We've used both translations in the lesson, using -ing and using the infinitive with "to". I am not quite sure what you mean.

It had been stated that the transitive form of the verb follows "gustar": me gustar bailar, to dance is liked  by me after which I assume "interpretation" is allowed to form I like dancing or I like to dance.?
