Nouns

Hello, 

I’d like to know why these nouns use the -ing form instead of the simple form. I’d appreciate any help.

ej.

“A dress fitting” instead of “a dress fit.”

“A drinking problem” instead of a “drink problem”.

But, this example use the simple form:

“Dance floor” instead of “dancing floor”.

Thanks in advance.
