D.C. Mayor Joins Left’s Assault on Dancing, Latest to ban Dancing


WASHINGTON, DC – Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has joined the left’s assault against dancing as the pandemic wanes and liberal politicians begin to roll back their draconian lockdown executive orders.

Governors in the Mid-Atlantic states, mostly Democrats are all regulating and legislating the ability to dance and none of them are dancing to the same tune.

Muriel said D.C. residents may once again host weddings up to the facility’s 25% capacity level, but no dancing. Guests must remain seated and dancing is prohibited.

In New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy has announced bars can reopen and restaurants will no longer have an indoor capacity limit, but his moratorium on cutting the rug in public remained in place. In New Jersey, you can only dance in private. Public dancing is prohibited by executive order.

In nearby Delaware, dancing has been prohibited by the state by executive order, but now the state is allowing for dance floors to reopen. That is once the business submits a full dancing health plan to the Delaware Department of Public Health.

“The use of dance floors, arcade/bar game areas, pool tables, and similar spaces is not permitted until plans are approved by DPH,” Delaware said in its latest guidance on April 28th.

In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced dancing is back, but guidance for dancing among attendees at catered events, replacing fixed dance zones for each table with social distancing and masks.
