DC mayor bans dancing at weddings: 'It's insane'

In a city where dancing is forbidden, not even a teenager with a rebellious spirit can save D.C. couples reeling from the capital’s latest COVID guidelines.

Seemingly ripped straight from the plot of "Footloose," Washington, D.C.'s, new social distancing rules ban standing and dancing at weddings. The sudden announcement, made just as wedding season kicks off, has blindsided couples getting ready to tie the knot.

"It’s insane, it’s been an absolute roller coaster," says Stephanie Sadowski, a D.C. wedding planner and owner of SRS Events.

Sadowski says couples are being forced to move their weddings outside of the nation’s capital with just one or two week’s notice.

"They want to have a party. Planning their wedding, they’ve made concessions along the way, they've reduced, reduced and reduced their guest count in Washington, D.C," she says.

In a statement to local affiliate Fox 5 DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office said it has the dancing ban in place as an extra layer of safety to reduce the spread of COVID-19 because when people stand and dance their behavior changes. For example, people are more likely to get close and touch each other.
