Mayor bans dancing at weddings in D.C.

In a city where dancing is illegal, not even a teenager with a defiant soul can save D.C. couples reeling from the capital’s most recent COVID guidelines. Seemingly tore straight from the plot of "Footloose," Washington, D.C.'s, new social distancing rules ban standing and dancing at weddings.

The sudden declaration, made just as wedding season kicks off, has blindsided couples getting prepared to tie the knot. "It’s insane, it’s been an absolute roller coaster," says Stephanie Sadowski, a D.C. wedding organizer, and owner of SRS Events.

According to the most recent D.C. order, indoor and outdoor weddings are capped at 25% capacity. A waiver is required for more than 250 individuals.

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