    Went dancing: 'went' is the verb, and 'dancing' is a gerund.

    Is skating: 'is skating' is the verb.

    In the first sentence, "went" is the verb. "Dancing" is considered to be either a gerund [old school] or an adverb [in modern grammar].

    In the second sentence, "is dancing" is the verb. It is in the present progressive tense.

    "Went" and "dancing" are both verbs, as are "is" and "skating". So "went dancing" and "is skating" are the verb phrases.
