I think sometimes it can be a territorial display, but it can definitely mean mating dance.

It's called juddering and is most commonly associated with mating rituals.

thats not mating - they grab each others claws when mating and they share if they have mated you should see the spermataphore in the tank

Sometimes the males are as clueless as some human males, and will mistakenly grab the metasoma instead of the second pedipalp. Usually they'll get it right if given enough time.
